Nine Egyptian start-ups make into one of Europe's largest technology events.
In an effort to break into the global entrepreneurship scene at London Tech week, nine Egyptian start-ups have gone to the UK to share their business ideas, announced the UK Embassy in Cairo earlier this week.
This comes as part of the UK funded Start Egypt Programme which is in collaboration with The International Finance Corportation (IFC), Flat6Labs, and the British Embassy in Cairo. Launching the initiative in Egypt with an aim to inspire and encourage Egyptian talent, British Ambassador to Cairo, John Casson further explains “we launched Start Egypt because we believe in Egyptian talent, and because we know that Egyptian entrepreneurs have brilliant ideas that can benefit not only their country but the world,"
The Egyptian start ups that are getting a chance to share their ideas in health, finance, engineering, and service industries this year are Chefaa, Weelo, Mosawer, 7aweshly, Argineering, Recommendator, Couterique, Elkrem, and Pushbots.
The inclusion of these start ups comes following Start Egypt’s search for Egyptian entrepreneurs and skillful young talents in several of Egypt's cities by bringing together several road shows and female-founders workshops that elaborated on how to start a business and attract investors.
London Tech Week which sees 55,000 tech professionals - everything from startups to big players in the industry - is one of the largest celebrations of technology in Europe.
