EEA Announces Shortlisted Entrepreneurs of the Year

As the first awards ceremony of its kind to spotlight and celebrate the brightest business minds in the country, Egypt’s Entrepreneur Awards does more than offer words of praise. Now in its third edition, the awards offers mentorships as a structure for healthy peer reviewing and encouragement, which is important now more than ever to build resilience amid the global economic challenges of today.

A shortlist of names has just been announced for each category, selected on the basis of their business acumen, perspicacity and vision, attention to market demands and leadership abilities. The juries were announced earlier this year and consisted of industry experts across the board, to make for the most informed judgements on each award.

Casting a wide net across industry sectors with fourteen awards categories, the EEA aims to seek out talent across a diverse spectrum of impact areas: beside the conventional ‘tech startup,’ attention is also given to lesser-exposed industry areas, such as the Sports and Wellness Award, or the Disruption of Traditional Industries Award.

It’s hoped that through supporting the most resilient, innovative and successful business leaders making an impact on Egypt’s economy – what the EEA calls the ‘People of Now’ – the initiative will help to cultivate a more robust entrepreneurial ecosystem in the country. Check out the full list of shortlisted names below. Finalists to be announced later this year.
