Register Now for GEC 2019 in Bahrain!

The Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) is a gathering of startup champions from around the world—where entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and other thought leaders work together to help bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. 



Every year, the Global Entrepreneurship Congress gathers together thousands of entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and other startup champions from more than 170 countries to identify new ways of helping founders start and scale new ventures around the world. 

Last year Holly Knower, NACUE's Chief Executive Officer, attended the event and talked about MY-GATEWAY to a crowd eager to learn more!

This year, the event will take place in Barhain on 15-18 April. 

The Global Entrepreneurship Congress unifies a broad collection of voices – and we hope you will add yours. At GEC 2019, you will be able to:  

  • Gain valuable insight from leaders in the field on the key elements of ecosystems that advance innovation and foster entrepreneurial growth. 
  • Learn about ready-to-scale programs and next-generation efforts to help entrepreneurs sharpen their skills. 
  • Brainstorm about building on global successes, overcoming individual challenges and strengthening collaborative efforts for the future.
  • Experience one of the MENA region’s most vibrant startup hubs and learn about next generation efforts to support entrepreneurs. 



#GEC2019 will feature dozens of sessions and networking opportunities while spotlighting three themes this year. We’ll be tackling the Global Entrepreneurial Revolution, High-Performance Ecosystems and Inclusive Economies.
