You can watch our webinar on mastering early-stage startup challenges below.

This webinar was part of the Global Entrepreneurship week Amman.

Virtual Pitch Event

Join us to watch live pitches from 5 aspiring entrepreneurs from the
region and tap into a new pool of promising startups in the MENA.

September 19th 2020

StartLabz is happy to announce it’s very first virtual angel investor event. Join us to watch live pitches from 5 aspiring entrepreneurs from the region. Our startups were carefully hand-picked based on tough criteria run by our investment committee.

StartLabz is an early pre-seed incubator that focuses on investing in tech-based entrepreneurial ideas in Jordan and the region. The program is run triannually for 3 months each round. Each year there are three rounds where 4-5 local startups will qualify. StartLabz was developed to encourage small businesses to join the tech. community in Jordan and the region. 

To attend our first event as an investor, you should look at your $100 ticket fee as an opportunity:

  • to get access to pre-selected and well groomed startups from the region, who can be ready to receive your investment at an early stage (reasonable valuations, fair risk).
  • to gain insights from other investors who will be at the event and be able to syndicate with them (co-invest to meet the investment goal of the startups).
  • to find high quality investment opportunities in the MENA’s startup space where you may become their mentor, board member or strategic partner.
  • to receive data on angel investors in the region, their interests, and willingness to invest

Our 5 Startups:

  1. Promising business ideas that are tailored to the region
  2. Well trained entrepreneurs who are looking to offer equity in exchange of cash investments.
  3. Investments ranging from $5,000 up to $100,000

The Event

5 Start-ups will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas for 10 minute and another 10 minutes will be allocated for question & answer. If investors are convinced, then they may announce their interest. Once the event is done, investors can share their interest with StartLabz, and we will facilitate the next steps that bring the investors and selected startups together. 

What to expect from the business pitches?

  1. Proof of Concept: proof they have something their targeted customers want. 
  2. A valuation that stacks up with a clear investment allocation plan. (Where to spend the money).
