Attending Riseup was a blast, so many new friends and potential partners during 3 days of seminars, speeches, workshops and of course parties. Riseup is very well organized and draws a massive crowd. Inspiring startups showcase their products and services and we were happy to see so many social entrepreneurs at the conference.
We managed to find time to explore Cairo. Visiting the Pyramids was a no-brainer. We also strolled the enigmatic Khan el Khalili market with its sprawling bazaars and historic mosques.
After a long day day at the conference a disco felucca cruising the Nile felt like a great idea.
Mingling at the Swedish Embassy with other entrepreneurs and investors was another highlight.
