The annual Investors' Dinner invites selected esteemed members of the ecosystem to the Embassy of Sweden in Egypt for an intimate dinner. Even though it seems like a blue-collar meeting rather than an event, it is the ultimate opportunity to network and exchange ideas and information with the region's biggest startup fanatics. I can't tell you where to register because this initiative is an invite-only event hosted by RiseUp in collaboration with Egyptian VC firm, Algebra Ventures.
