RISE is the largest tech conference in Asia and brings speakers from the world’s biggest companies, most exciting startups, media and investors to their annual meeting in Hong Kong. Over 14,000 people from 90 countries gathered this month and Careem’s co-founder Mudassir Sheikha was one of the key speakers.

Mudassir spoke about the biggest mistake he’s made; the importance of hiring people who are super ambitious; why Careem doesn’t have employees and the two things that startups in the Middle East really struggle with.

Key people from Careem are regularly being asked to speak at events, such is the interest in what we are doing. Last month Junaid Iqbal, Managing Director of Careem Pakistan, gave a TEDx talk on the philosophy on knowing that you know nothing.
