Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

The Women Leadership Summit is the largest gathering of female leaders and entrepreneurs in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. At this summit, we are highlighting the exponential power of exceptional female talent across industries. We are also identifying and awarding the top female founders in Saudi & across the region.

 

Female Founder of the Year is the most competitive awards in MENA dedicated to female founders in the tech and the digital space. We are currently accepting applications and nominations from around the world, MENA, and Saudi Arabia. Basically any female founders in tech can apply. We accept startups across all stages, industries, and countries.

However, there must be at least 1 female founder in the team who owns at least 10% equity in the company and the startups must be a tech startup.

Once you apply, our team will interview you and we will shortlist the top 10 female led tech companies to pitch on our global stage in front of Investors, heads of state, and tech leaders.

You can also get your family and friends or people who believe in you to vote for your startup. Public votes will account for 10% of the the overall final score where 90% of the vote will be determined by our panel of expert judges and investors.
