The first wave of climate tech solutions saw the sharp rise, and even steeper decline in such technologies. By 2015, VC investors lost more than half of the $25 billion they invested into CleanTech 1.0, thanks to inflated optimism around consumer behavior, unscalable technology, and supply chain setbacks, and region-specific challenges such poor infrastructure, lack of patient capital, in addition to a challenging pool of talent to push these solutions forward. Climate Tech solutions are back and hot with the rising focus on ESG, sustainability and the race towards Net-Zero.This session will address what governments, private instiutions, investors and wider ecosystem need to do to unlock the next wave of breakthrough climate innovations.

To end poverty, and reach prosperity and human development, financial inclusion is a prerequisite. There are approximately 1.7 billion people in the world who cannot access financial services, with the Middle East and Africa having some of the most unbanked populations, excerbating inequalities even further, with most of them being individuals with lower incomes, geographically isolated, usually in rural areas with lower levels of education, and predominently female. This session will address how fintech solutions are adressing financial inclusion and how innovative entrepreneurs can work with established banking and financing instiutions to ensure they have the necessary infrastructure to mainstream their services, and eventually, reach all unbanked populations to bridge inequalities.

According to the World Health Organisation, at least half of the world's population does not have access to essential health services. From political to economic instability and dramatic climate change events, people are on the move, and the refugee crisis is proliferating around the globe. Lack of clean water and inadequate sanitation and hygiene services contribute to the cause and spread of disease. Double that down with a lack of access to vaccination and preventative health service, the scenario is grim, despite the support from international organisations in remote and marginalised areas. On the other hand, emerging markets can capitalise on technological advancements and leapfrog traditional health models. This session will address the role that investors and healthtech founders have in prioritising emerging markets to reach a closer level of healthcare access equality.

The current education system, originally designed to cater to the needs of the industrial revolution, dates back a few centuries now. It is not accelerating as quickly as the technological advancements that the world is exposed to. The region needs to ensure that the younger cohorts and those already in the workforce have the right skills to succeed in tomorrow’s jobs, with digital literacy, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and adaptability at the top of the list. This session will address how edtech startups can support governments and academic institutions in providing the digital native generations with the skills and tools they need to succeed in an ever-evolving world.

"Web 3 for Good" has been advocated to increase democratisation of information, eliminate intermediaries, and give back power to the people regarding who controls their data. The metaverse is also considered another platform to help us move from engaging to immersive in multiple social sectors, including healthcare, education, and employment. Other skeptics warn from falling into the trap of doing things the old way on a different, newly revolutionised platform. This session will address how Web 3 can be used to propel positive impact, but also some challenges and pitfalls that impact-driven founders and investors should be aware of.

The rise of the internet and web technologies has had a deep impact on artistic creation, which includes much more collaboration, appropriation, and participation.
The new wave of tech companies and startups looking to disrupt the creative industry has been growing, and transparency and democratisation are spread all over it. Opening up art and entertainment beyond the affluent mass presents another level of social and cultural equality, and removing intermediaries within the space benefits the creatives similarly. This session will address how tech entrepreneurs are using AI, NFTs, and the blockchain to transform the creative industry scene.

Human capital is constantly affected by global economic, social, and technological shifts. In the MENA region, the 31% of youth unemployment rate remains one of the most alarming metrics hindering the region's development.
