A Practical Guide on How to Successfully Set Up a Company in KSA

About the event

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is a well-known market but not well understood. In recent years, however, a growing economy has made KSA the country to expand to in the region. While the opportunities for tech companies in the country are massive and many challenges are typically underserved, setting up and establishing a company has been challenging until now.

DMCC partnered with AstroLabs Academy to organise an exclusive seminar on “A Practical Guide on How to Successfully Set Up a Company in KSA”.

AstroLabs Founding Partner, Muhammed Mekki and Director of Saudi Operations, Saad Aljabr discussed the setup process in KSA, the reasons why you should consider it and successful case studies of companies that have already done so.


The seminar covered the following topics:

  • Intro to KSA business environment and recent changes
  • Overview of the new licensing opportunity
  • How AstroLabs can help


Who attended?

Founders, CEOs, Managing Directors, Heads of Business Development and anyone leading regional expansion for their companies and interested in setting up in KSA.
