The #ConsciousTech Movement​

Our CEO Salma El-Hariry Has coined the term ‘Conscious Techies’ to refer to the world’s mindful risk-taking entrepreneurs exploring frontier technologies to make real impact in humanity.

A #ConsciousTech movement stemmed out of Vested Summit 2018 to bring awareness to this type of tech startups that have the focus of solving real world’s problems; like education, healthcare, transportation, water, etc.



Vested Summit; the World’s Largest #ConsciousTech Summit, is a gathering of passion-fwd tech disruptors, influencers & tech-heads coming together to hack real world problems using frontier technologies (AI, VR/AR, Big Data, Robotics, Fintech, Blockchain) with the help of our technology partners, experts/mentors, speakers and investors. Hosted for 2 years out of Egype and with over 1500+ attendees from 25 countries including global influential leaders like Jason Silva as a keynote, Vested Summit has helped, mentored and attracted investments for over 120 startups so far.
