Having just completed a successful third cycle, the collaborative incubator between EGBANK and Cairo Angels has cemented itself as one of the most prolific in Egypt.
After completing its third cycle, the MINT Incubator can now consider itself as one of the most active effective incubators of its kind in Egypt.
As a collaboration between EGBANK and Cairo Angels, the program not only offers young entrepreneurs the chance to eventually pitch their ideas to some of the country’s most prolific investors, but also equips them with the tools and resources to develop and refine their startups.
It does so by giving participants the chance to engage with experienced mentors through a series of intensive workshops at the MINT co-working space in Downtown Cairo, which cover a variety of areas including finance, sales & marketing, growth hacking, accounting basics, legal & governance, attracting and retaining talent – and the results speak for themselves.
Also offering free tools and applications, as well as networking sessions, the first cycle in Spring of 2018 alone saw 10 innovative startups graduate into a variety of different fields, while the second graduated 11 startups.
The third cycle has continued MINT’s rich vein of success, with 10 startups graduating, including Hirebits, Startup Manager, Netsahem and Koay World. As has become custom, the program came to a grand finale with a demo day that gave the spotlight to these young innovators in front of the top angel and venture investors in Egypt and the region.
MINT has more than done its part in tapping into the increasingly large pool of young entrepreneurs, painting the future of Egypt very brightly.
Applications for the fourth cycle are open, and deadline for submission is on 3rd of August. If you think you have the next big idea, click here for more information on how to change a concept to reality.
