StartupQ8 3rd Event

The 3rd StartupQ8 event will be on the 15th of December and this time we have a big surprise. Dr. Naif Al-Mutuwa is going to be in one of our sessions 🙂 To me personally and with all due respect to all entrepreneurs in Kuwait, I believe that Dr. Naif is the only successful story of a modern entrepreneur we have in Kuwait. And by modern entrepreneur I mean someone who came up with an innovative idea and convert it into a global company that generates millions of dollars, employs thousands of people and adds value to the world. Dr. Naif achieved most of these goals already and more to come.

Sorry I got little bit passionate, but I’m really excited to have him with us, back to the event. So yeah we have Dr. Naif, we will also have Abdulaziz Al Loughani (one of the previous partners at to talk to us about Early Stage Funding and Hoi Wan (an experienced entrepreneur from Hong Kong) to give us a closer look into the startup scene in Hong Kong and what can we learn from it. Below is the full Agenda:
