A total of 35 startups have been shortlisted across 11 categories for the third edition of the Egypt’s Entrepreneur Awards (EEA).
Across all the categories, the third edition of the EEA competition received 286 applications, and after significant deliberations by a panel of distinguished jury members, 35 nominees were chosen as finalists.
“We created this platform three years ago with a mission to recognise local, and now regional entrepreneurs, in a way that acknowledges their journey to success that has not been done before,” said Amr Mansi, EEA’s founder and CEO.
“Through challenging times, these entrepreneurs have shown resilience and created real value for their industries in innovative and tangible ways such as product market fit, growth and financial stability, as well as social impact. They are an unseen force contributing to this economy and a source of inspiration for the next generation of entrepreneurs.”
Jury members will now meet to deliberate and interview the finalists over the next few weeks. Selected winners from the 14 categories will be announced at an awards ceremony on June 10 in Cairo.
