What's Next

The What’s Next platform is the first exclusive forum in frontier emerging markets to identify, support and build relationships with—and eventually take to market—the next generation of great businesses in Egypt, UAE and KSA.

What does this mean for companies? A gateway for growth.

Companies that are selected to be a part of What’s Next will be provided with customized perks, such as visibility, outreach, cross-boundary access to investor networks, pitch training and sector research delivered by each of the three partners, Enterprise, EFG Hermes and Inktank.

What does this mean for investors? Vetted investment opportunities.

Investors in the What’s Next network will be able to keep their fingers on the market’s pulse as we introduce them to companies they wouldn’t meet elsewhere, namely companies that define what’s next and are en route to become the next generation of public companies.
