Eight astonishing African, Middle Eastern and Pakistan Series A startups take the stage to share their growth stories.


We think the emerging startup ecosystems of Africa, the Middle East, and Pakistan deserve more international attention. These regions have tremendous potential when it comes to solving the pressing challenges of today with tech-driven solutions.

We at Slush want to use our platform to improve the fundraising opportunities of startups operating in emerging ecosystems. Hence, we created the brand new Emerging Hubs Showcase. These superstar founders solve critical problems with E-commerce, Fintech, Renewables, and Edtech.

This concept is the home to eight most impressive startups from Africa, the Middle East, and Pakistan. Each startup has raised a Series A round, ranging from 7.5 M to 44 M. Moreover, they are top VC-backed companies leading the tech-driven shift in emerging, fast-growing ecosystems.
