The StartSmart Investment Forum is a three-day exhibition aimed at providing startups around the globe the opportunity to expand their businesses to the Saudi market and meet investors.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia strongly believes in the role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in driving economic growth. And as part of the objectives of its Vision 2030, the Kingdom pays great attention to supporting SMEs by providing them with most suitable investment opportunities. This endeavor resulted in the establishment of an authority for small and medium enterprises, whose mission is to enact legislation supporting the business activities of SMEs, facilitating their access to financing, enabling them to enter into international partnerships, and guaranteeing them a greater share in the local market and government tenders.
