The United States Department of State Global Innovations through Science and Technology (GIST) Initiative announces a program to support and train science and technology Egyptian entrepreneurs. The program will be implemented in Alexandria in partnership with Icealex innovation hub at The Four Seasons Hotel from 4 to 7 November.

The training will provide science and technology entrepreneurs with skills such as business validation, value proposition, and revenue models to support their leap into entrepreneurship. The training aims to help entrepreneurs improve their business ideas, perfect their pitch, and showcase their innovations during a Demo Day in front of business leaders, policymakers, academics, and chief science advisors.

This startup training program is a part GIST’s support to the Egyptian entrepreneurial ecosystem. In addition to this program, a GIST Investor Mobilization Training Program (GIST Investors) will take place on November 7. The training will provide a select group of angel investors in Egypt with training in angel investing, including due diligence, negotiations, and exit planning, to further support their ability to invest in Egyptian startups. The investors will then attend the final Demo Day, to observe and network with the exciting startups that went through the GIST Startup Training Program.
