Egypt’s Minister of Investment, Sahar Nasr, is set to lay the cornerstone of the first regional entrepreneurship centre in the framework of Egypt Entrepreneurship Summit 2018.

The Egyptian government works as one team to empower youth and women, and to have an integrated system to support entrepreneurs, according to Nasr.

The Egypt Entrepreneurship Summit (EES) 2018 marks the fourth year of the EES. Since its inception in 2015, it has grown substantially in size and scope. The EES will be the highlight of Egypt’s Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) celebrations in 2018.

The summit is organized by the International Labor Organization (ILO), International Council for Small Business and Global Ecovillage Network.

This year’s EES will once again gather cutting-edge thinkers, practitioners, and policymakers, to review together the state of entrepreneurship in Egypt.

Experts from many fields, including but not limited to, SME leaders, corporations, academics, government officials and policy makers, entrepreneurs, youth, entrepreneurship supporting organizations such as incubators, accelerators and educational- and training institutions come together to discuss barriers and celebrate innovative successes.
