Egypt Entrepreneurship Summit 2018

“Bridging the Gap: International and National Best Practices”

__

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 GEW is an initiative of the Global Entrepreneurship Network, during which events and competitions will showcase the potential of entrepreneurship in 170 countries around the globe.

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.

EES 2018 overarching theme Bridging the Gap: International and National Best Practicesis a call to create together a global vision on the development of our young entrepreneurs, a key priority for policymakers and government around the world. There is a need for stronger partnership, integrating and increasing proximity between international and national best practices. The Summit will feature the four distinct themes of the GEW 2018: women, youth, inclusion and ecosystem development.

Some parts of the Summit will allow participants to explore selected topics through interactive workshops. EES 2018 will offer breakout sessions on (i) EducationInnovation, looking at development needs from technical to higher level education, (ii) Financial Technology, by far the largest driver of innovation challenging old business models and Digital Economy to enhance inclusiveness and innovation (iii) the Youth Entrepreneurship Academy, where young entrepreneurs and scholars can present their papers and receive feedback and advice from renowned researchers in their field.
