The research publication which is to be launched in September includes a detailed account on the Startup Ecosystem in Egypt, and its progress over the past 5-10 years.

The publication is an estimated in-depth analysis detailing the dealings of the Egyptian startup Ecosystem: "who is investing?”, “Who is a part of or supporting the ecosystem?”, “what are recent funding and acquisitions?”, “what is the industry and sector analysis".

Why Egypt?

It comes as no surprise why Egypt would be chosen as the pioneering country for this geographically focused research publication. The country is a thriving start - up hub, attracting venture capital, social impact funds and private equity of millions in dollars. Just in June 2021, a whopping investment of $190 million was recorded in Egypt. This speaks of a certain influence the country’s startup ecosystem has on the region across it.

Disrupt Africa partnering with the Information Technology Industry Development Agency(ITIDA).

As an Egyptian government and private agency hybrid committed to the IT development in Egypt, it is imperative for ITIDA to be interested and invested in such a publication. With an already invested interest in research and tech start ups,  the agency is sure to make a key contribution to the country's economic growth. Stakeholders of ITIDA, such as universities, industry players, investors utilizing the vast network, data sets and expertise for this publication is expected to produce a brilliant and informative mine of Startup Ecosystem.
