Angel Rising organized jointly by startAD, the global startup accelerator of NYU Abu Dhabi and investment platform VentureSouq has grown to be a leading voice demystifying and encouraging the cause of technology startup investments from the UAE.

This 6th edition of Angel Rising, this year in collaboration with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and Sharjah Entrepreneurship Centre (Sheraa), will focus on the topic of ‘Conscious Investing and Catalyzing Technology for Good’. The symposium will convene global and local thought leaders in the startup community in order to build awareness, access, and a better understanding of what it takes to become an investor into mission-driven technology enabled companies.

This year Angel Rising will take place virtually as the culmination of the core modules of the Conscious Investor Fellowship.
