The third edition of Egypt’s Entrepreneur Awards (EEA) has a total of 35 startups that have been shortlisted across 11 categories.
Amr Mansi, the founder, and CEO of EEA, said, “We started this platform three years ago with a vision to recognize local, and now regional, entrepreneurs in a way that acknowledges their journey to success in a way that has never been done before.
Through challenging times, these entrepreneurs have shown resilience and created reinforced 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,” Mansi added.
The third iteration of the EEA competition received 286 applications for all of the categories combined, and after careful consideration by a distinguished jury, 35 nominees were selected as finalists.
In the next weeks, the jury members will gather to deliberate and interview the candidates.
On June 10 in Cairo, there will be an awards event where the 14 categories’ chosen winners will be announced.
