Entrepreneurship

Today’s episode is with Mai Medhat, the CEO and co-founder of Eventtus; an events engagement platform and the leading event technology company in the Middle East.

Eventtus was recently acquired in July 2021 by Bevy, a California-based enterprise software startup for virtual conferences and community events.

Mai is an Egyptian tech entrepreneur who co-founded Eventtus with a mission to mobilize events after a personal experience at some events that used to be managed manually.

The company raised +4M in VC funding and is successfully serving 20,000+ events in 60+ cities. Mai was named “Entrepreneur of the Year" by Arabian Business in 2016 and she has been recognized by the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2016 as one of the most promising entrepreneurs and was invited to represent Middle East startups in an iconic panel with Former President Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook.

Eventtus was named Startup of the year in 2017 by Entrepreneur Middle East Magazine.
