The Sharjah Entrepreneurship Festival, held every November, is the fastest-growing entrepreneurship festival in the Middle East, helping put Sharjah on the map as a vibrant hub for entrepreneurs. Inaugurated in 2017, the festival seeks to inspire the next generation of founders, instilling the courage and confidence to dream big and take charge of the future.
This is part of cultivating the entrepreneurial culture that is so vital to all entrepreneurship ecosystems, encouraging risk-taking, creativity, and critical thinking. Across the two-day event, attendees are introduced to changemakers from around the globe, who share their stories and showcase the incredible potential entrepreneurship has to positively impact the world. They learn about the nature of the ecosystem and how to navigate it. And, of course, they are encouraged to join the growing entrepreneurship community and think about how they too can make a difference.
