About the Innovation Ecosystem Tour

Join us the day after this year’s Africa Fintech Summit for an ecosystem tour tailor-made to spotlight the advancements and energy that have brought global attention to Egypt’s burgeoning startup community. The goal of this tour is to introduce foreign AFTS attendees to the developments, entrepreneurs, and thought-leaders driving the tech industry in Egypt. The tour will highlight the most prestigious and newsworthy locations for Egyptian startups and will introduce attendees to a vast array of Egypt’s most fruitful early-stage startups. 


Who should attend? 

This tour is intended to be a unique opportunity for venture capital investors with little to no prior portfolio exposure in North Africa to familiarize themselves with the geography, regulatory framework, and the vast potential of Egypt’s startup ecosystem. See the program below.
