EGBANK and Cairo Angels are on the hunt for ambitious startups looking to take things to the next level.
Teaming up once more with Cairo Angels, EGBANK has again thrown its support and trust in Egypt’s youth with the second cycle of their MINT Incubator - a program that aims to equip young-n-hungry minds looking to break through in some otherwise difficult-to-penetrate fields.
For those unfamiliar with the cutting-edge lingo of the entrepreneurial sphere, it’s all actually pretty simple.
What the incubator offers is for young startups the chance to work under the tutelage of an experienced mentor and engage in workshops to hone and develop skills, all in the rather too-cool-for-school MINT co-working space in Downtown Cairo. So successful was the first cycle in the spring, in fact, that 10 startups were graduated into fields as varied as art, e-commerce and healthcare – 10 that had been whittled down from over 100 applicants.
“One of the great benefits here is networking; whether it’s with mentors or fellow startups, and we have witnessed the direct impact it had on our startup,” Moataz Salah, co-founder of Cyber Talents, a startup specialised in cyber security, who was one of the 10 graduating startups that were then given the opportunity to pitch their products to investors, partners, customers and media outlets at a special demo day.
Aimed at startups with a solid product, the intensive three-month program isn’t for the faint of heart; but it’s done wonders to aid and develop a startup scene that is front-and-centre of pushing Egypt in the right direction.
