Yahya Khan's Involvement:

I visited Leap as an Attendee with one of my Tech Managers. It was a great event showcasing great opportunities for IT businesses and services in the MENA region. The IT industry is experiencing a boom in KSA. All the local businesses and people I have met were amazing and were not reluctant to such a big industrial revolution and change.

Key Takeaways:


A very professional and impressive event, especially providing free and easy-to-use transport services operating during the event hours. A dedicated mobile app was provided to network and schedule meetings with attendees, investors, entrepreneurs, and other like-minded people. Meeting new people started for me right after sitting on the bus. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. And yes the event was free for attendees. People from Mena, Europe, and South Asia were mostly seen. Big giants like Microsoft and Google were at the front desks.


Networking and Collaboration:


One of the best parts was that they were serving Madinah dates and Saudi Gahwa (Tea). I was able to meet more than 30 like-minded people and companies in these 4 days and built great connections. I am still in contact with most of them. I was also able to generate two amazing leads for my startup. Had a detailed meeting with one of the leads during the conference at the investor’s lounge.


Leap was a 4-day event, which was not sufficient. The number of companies and startups exhibiting there were not able to be explored in such a short time. I met some amazing startups who were working on emerging technologies, especially in robotics and AI. Some had showcased and built outstanding MVPs.


KSA welcomes businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, and self-employed professionals from all around the globe by providing different channels and facilitating the processes of getting started. One of the biggest things noticed is that they are providing work spaces, consultations, and domain expertise to the newbies. They welcome talents from all over to invest and share their knowledge with the people who willingly and proactively contribute to this change and growth.


Personal Reflections: 


Seems like it is one of the best regions for a company like ours to expand our business to. And yes we are planning to do so. Most of the big giants are about to bring their headquarters to KSA. Which is a good sign of an emerging market. Demand and supply are insufficient, and KSA needs talents and new businesses to capture and conquer the IT industry there.
