MIT Enterprise Forum (MITEF) Saudi Arabia is part of a global network of chapters dedicated to the promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation worldwide. We inform, connect, and coach technology entrepreneurs—enabling them to rapidly transform ideas into world-changing companies.

Founded in 2015 with the goal of promoting and enriching the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Saudi Arabia, we aim to celebrate and support all potential startups and entrepreneurs in the Kingdom through our Startups and Ideas Competition.

The MITEF Saudi Arabia competition focuses on attracting high potential social and business startups and ideas in all social and business fields. Participating in this competition will give you local and international exposure and recognition through MIT Enterprise Forum Global, as well as through MIT Technology Review, a media company wholly owned by MIT. As a part of the MITEF Pan Arab Region, the winners of the MITEF Saudi Arabia Competition will be invited to participate in the 9th MIT Enterprise Forum Arab Startup Competition.
