Entrepreneurship & Business Support


“Smell what you sell” a famous quote by the global serial entrepreneur, Lord Alan Sugar. Lord Sugar built an empire of 1.6 billion dollars from nothing. The quote is about understanding the Unique Selling Proposition (USP) of your products, dumping low-profit items, considering the sparkle of innovation, sniffing customer trends and turning marginal profits from low budgets. To have this flavor of concepts, BES department runs many tracks to let startups follow suit. That is all done to realize the following:

  • Having Tech displayed on global screens.
  • Creating high value job opportunities.
  • Increasing the patent rates.
  • Enticing Investors to support startups.
  • Advocating new policies on innovation and entrepreneurship in the ICT cluster.

Startup Support

Startup Support Program (S2)

S2 programme is designed to capitalize on developing competencies through highly customized trainings and consultations. Besides; supporting startups to be perfectly displayed on the local and regional exhibitions to have access to sources of funding, testing concepts before new audience and building B2B connections. Example of exhibitions we always keep an eye on: GITEX Dubai and Mobile World Congress. On top of the above, S2 is offering the Soft landing service – done in partnerships with the European Business Network (EBN). Soft landing is concerned with providing startups with strategies needed to move from their comfort zone in the local markets to penetrate high-end markets in Europe.


Entrepreneurship Policy Advocacy

Entrepreneurship Policy Advocacy (EPA)

Startups and SMEs play an active role in diversifying the economy streamlines. Having landscape full of talents with enormous market of 80 million, Multinational Companies (MNCs) found Egypt a perfect destination to penetrate and develop their markets. Despite all of these appealing factors, the flavor of investments turns sour as some policies might hinder the ecosystem to shine and grow. TIEC holds hands on spotting these policies while communicating with the ecosystem players to have their inputs in the reform process. We do gap analysis, help in policy formulation and enable public private Dialogue.
