'Hasoub' Conference 2019 - “The Power of Network”
Our new partner, حاسوب - Hasoub - a social venture dedicated to promoting Tech_Awareness & Tech_Entrepreneurship in the Arab society - is sharing with us its insights from Hasoub's annual flagship event, Hasoub Conference 2019 “The Power of Network”:
Morning professional Tracks
Through panel discussions and small-group activities, each track came up with interesting and insightful ideas. Participants were tasked to brainstorm top problems facing the Arab community in the fields of entrepreneurship and innovation; career planning and development; and cross border collaboration. Thereafter, top problems were shortlisted and high-impact, minimal-effort solutions were devised to tackle these issues. In the end, each track presented their valuable findings on the main stage, with ideas that surrounded the need to build closer-knit communities and to leverage upon the power of network and community to empower our society!
Main stage speakers
The main stage was just as exciting, as speakers from a variety of backgrounds spoke at length about a wide range of topics - from encouraging innovation, to venture capitalists’ investments, the journeys of various entrepreneurs, diversity at the workplace and the future of #technology in our society. It was an action-packed afternoon filled with valuable and interesting insights.
In general, the conference was a great opportunity and platform for members of our community to meet new people. Many were observed to have engaging conversations throughout the conference venue - be it at the lunch table, the recruitment booths or simply standing around chatting! An atmosphere conducive to networking and learning more about tech-entrepreneurship was created, and we are sure that many left the event with valuable insights and new opportunities.
We are all looking forward to the community’s active participation in our upcoming Hasoub-on-Campus, Hasoub Investors Program and Hasoub-In-Town initiatives.
