On Friday, January 27 and Saturday, January 28, TechWadi will host a two-day celebration honoring the work it has done to create connections between the Silicon Valley and Middle East over the past 10 years.

  1. On January 27, 2017, TechWadi will host a special gala dinner where we will recognize leaders in the community. From 6-10 pm, join TechWadi’s staff and board members to recognize emerging leaders and noteworthy professionals in the community, enjoy a series of performances by musicians and artists in the Bay Area, and a plated dinner all for a wonderful cause. The TechWadi Annual Forum Dinner is part of the organization’s largest two-day fundraiser. Proceeds for the dinner will benefit Middle Eastern entrepreneurs both domestic and abroad and will go towards planning efforts for future sprint acceleration programs, the mentorship program and networkers/mixers moving forward.
