MENA Founders Stories: Augmented/Virtual Reality

We are excited to be hosting our first AR/VR meetup here at our HQ together with Digital Arabia Network!

In cooperation with the Deutsch-Algerischer Verein für Akademiker und Studierender (DAAS), we’ll explore the (new) different use cases of AR/VR technology across the economic and cultural spheres to see whether the hype of these technologies is over or still has more to offer.

Our speakers come from the MENA Tech Talent pool living here in Berlin. They will dive into how AR/VR is making its way into our daily lives and will also share their very own stories of how they are using AR and VR to make a difference. We look forward to meeting you all there.
