Feb 18,2011

Our friends at Stanford University’s Technology Ventures Program (STVP) have been running annual international conferences for entrepreneurship educators called Roundtables on Entrepreneurship Education (REE). These events take place in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Middle East/North Africa, and the USA and are designed to stimulate communication and collaboration between business, science and engineering faculty who teach high-technology entrepreneurship in universities around the world.

This year, we present our first REE Middle East/North Africa (REE MENA). The event’s co-host is the Higher Colleges of Technology, and the event will take place at the Abu Dhabi Men’s College campus.

“Entrepreneurship Oasis: Building the Regional Ecosystem”

This first REE MENA will be a landmark event, bringing together entrepreneurship educators and other members of the entrepreneurial ecosystem from throughout the Middle East and North Africa, as well as other parts of the world. The goal is to create a vibrant and growing community that works together to advance entrepreneurship education in the region. Springing from the theme of “Entrepreneurship Oasis: Building the Regional Ecosystem,” the conference program aims to engage participants in deep conversation and idea sharing while providing a completely unique and inspirational experience.

The organizers of REE MENA 2011 invite you to share your experiences with regard to:

  • Entrepreneurship education methodologies and curricula
  • Research on innovation and entrepreneurship in the Middle East/North Africa
  • Innovative entrepreneurship education programs

For TechWadi educators, members, and entrepreneurs, please see Stanford’s Call for Presentations [PDF, 57 KB]. If you apply, please contact us at info[at]techwadi.org so we may put in a good word. For all others, make sure to register here, tickets are $450.
