The Food Project is a holistic entrepreneurship programme designed to help develop female entrepreneurs’s ideas into the funding and investment stage.
The Egypt-based Arab women’s entrepreneurship network, Entreprenelle, is now accepting applications for the Food Project Acceleration Program, which offers an opportunity for culinary talents to scale their businesses by equipping them with the necessary tools to flourish in the food and beverage (F&B) industry.
The project is a holistic entrepreneurship programme designed to help progress entrepreneurs’ ideas to the funding and investment stage, and offers female entrepreneurs the opportunity to grow their businesses through workshops addressing the subjects of marketing, pricing strategies, as well as sales and negotiations. It will be backed by a plethora of additional support bringing in a range of experience.
Participants will also be able to take field visits to successful startups headquarters, examine case studies, network with service providers, gain access to the Entreprenelle community, and more.
In an attempt to level the playing field for women, the acceleration programme will be partially funded by Entreprenelle, which pays for 50% of the total LE 5,000. Entreprenelle is a social development and business impact organisation dedicated to empowering women economically through education, training, and building connections within the business realm.
In the past five years, the organisation has carried out more than 1,000 projects, with an estimated impact for more than 50,000 Egyptian women.
