About this Event

On September 18th, we’re celebrating the launch of our first book in Egypt: Startup Guide Cairo! Join us at Startup Haus Cairo for an evening of freshly printed books, insightful discussions and good company as we welcome the newest addition to our extended family of guidebooks.

Ranked by a 2018 UN report as the most attractive African city for foreign investment, Cairo is a startup hub buzzing with youthful energy and a reputation for social entrepreneurship. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, then, that Egypt is on its way to becoming one of the top ecosystems on the continent!

As part of the festivities, our community partner and event host, enpact, will give a sneak peak of this year’s Startup Friendliness Index. Based on more than 80 indicators, the SFI measures different conditions for entrepreneurial success in urban growth markets, including Cairo. Additionally, the launch event will feature a panel discussion exploring Cairo’s startup ecosystem evolution, which will be moderated by Rawan Bassam, Community Manager of Startup Haus Cairo. We’re thrilled to hear the input of our panelists: Dr. Wessam El Beih, Country Director of Drosos Foundation, Jan Lachenmayer, Managing Director of enpact, Rash Rady Cofounder and COO of Chefaa and Rafeh Saleh, Country Director The Founder Institute.

Startup Guide Cairo is packed with helpful resources, expert advice and insightful interviews to help aspiring entrepreneurs navigate the city’s startup scene and build their business. The book was made in collaboration with our community partner, enpact, and supported by GIZ, Drosos Foundation, ALEXBANK, Farouk & Kozman and Benchmark Consulting. The official media partner for the book was Startup Scene ME.
