Since 2018, GESALO has served as an iconic framework for the German-Saudi entrepreneur ecosystem in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

 

Our annual Star!up Germany tour is the flagship event that provides learning, networking, and collaboration opportunities for Saudi and Bahraini entrepreneurs and the German startup and business community.
Our startup competition shines a spotlight on early-stage startups with outstanding potential, connecting them with the world's most influential people.

3 minutes to change your life!
It is widely acknowledged that Innovation and entrepreneurship are driving forces of economic growth and social development in today's modern society. GESALO, for the third year in a row, aims to combine innovation and entrepreneurship, promoting the German, Saudi, and Bahraini initiatives to support innovative ideas, development, and business creation.
Pitch your innovative startup to a live audience and the most influential people in the German, Saudi, and Bahraini business community, including partners of some of the most prestigious GIGA projects in Saudi Arabia.

The opportunity
The call is dedicated to Saudi and Bahraini based startups and businesses - made up of individuals or teams - with innovative projects or ideas.
Participants will have the opportunity to increase visibility and make their project known, presenting it to a public audience as well as an exclusive jury made up of experts and major players in the relevant sectors, which may decide to support the realization and growth of the business idea.
