Egypt: green startups meet investors

Green Entrepreneurs Prove it at Egypreneur Club; Switching to environmentally-sustainable business is a winning economic & social strategy for Egypt.


Last Thursday, August 3rd, Egypreneur Club at Talaat Harb Square - currently on soft opening mode - hosted "Green Startups Meet Investors" event organized on behalf of the EU's SwitchMed Programme; a program dedicated to assisting Green Startups in accessing capital and support services needed to scale their ventures. The event featured 7 entrepreneurs pitching their business for feedback from stakeholders, who had been generous with their insights during and after the event.

Egypreneur Club, Talaat Harb is hosting a few follow-up meetings between entrepreneurs, investors and stakeholders who found some of these projects interesting. If you find any of the ventures below relevant to you, please, do get in touch, would be glad to introduce you to the entrepreneurs to discuss partnership.

Personally, I admired all the project ideas and was very delighted to see sophisticated solutions to real-life problems that is either already implemented and seeking growth capital or getting very close to commercialization. A stage in which I was able to work with the entrepreneurs on what my previous 12 years has been about, turning a great idea/concept/product into a great company.
