Welcome to the world’s first roadshow competition for Syrian entrepreneurs

Taking on a tour in search of the top Syrian-led startups across the Middle East, the roadshow is calling on Syrian students, young professionals, and entrepreneurs with business ideas to transform them into startups ready to take on the world.

We are looking for the relentless spirits, the inventive minds, and the transformers who turn problems into challenges and take on the entrepreneurial journey with unquenchable thirst.
We are looking for those who question the word impossible and believe their dreams are stronger than the odds. Are you one of them?

Why participate


Jump into the most exciting startup competition and get trained and by international experts and some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs in the MENA region. The Startup Roadshow, organized by Jusoor Syria and SPARK will include an opportunity to meet with top investors, and present your idea on global stages in Amsterdam during SPARK Ignite Conference.

If your team has at least one Syrian refugee founder and you have developed an innovative solution to an existing problem, apply as both idea stage and early stage.

The Prizes


The Roadshow will hold the semi-finals in each of the 5 cities, where 2 finalists from each location will be crowned. At the end of the tour, the 2 finalists from each location will head off to Amman for a Demo Day, where the 3 winners will be selected. But there’s more! Other than the prizes, the lucky winners will take off to Amsterdam, to showcase their startups at the SPARK Ignite Conference.
