Eighty-four startups applied to participate in Web Summit, of which 48 were shortlisted. They pitched before a jury consisting of members from ITIDA, DETGD, and the Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (TIEC). Startups were assessed following certain criteria, including the level of innovation over competition, potential market size, broad applicability, international scalability, inevitability, and representative professionalism.
The participation in Web Summit reflects the huge efforts of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and ITIDA to nurture innovators and entrepreneurs, support startups and increase their potential to attract investors by participating in global and regional events.
Egypt is participating in Web Summit for the 4th consecutive year. In 2022, the country took part in the global event with a national pavilion that hosted 23 startups, in addition to a delegation from DETGD.
ITIDA and DETGD, through their participation in Web Summit, strive to strengthen Egypt’s position on the global map of innovation and entrepreneurship, promote the Egyptian startup ecosystem, and showcase the national incentives and competitive advantages in this area. The aim is to attract more angel investors, venture capital (VC) firms, and innovation platforms to the Egyptian market.
