Egypt is among six African countries that will host the fourth edition of a pan-African incubation programme by Nigerian investment firm, Unicorn Group. Alongside  Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Kenya and Uganda, Egypt is on the radar of the Lagos-based company as it seeks innovative ideas, startups and early-stage companies in tech and tech-enabled sectors. 


In providing business advisory services, access to industry experts and mentors, management and leadership training, interactive workspaces, networking and venture capital financing to selected participants, Unicorn Group hopes to unearth the continent’s next unicorn. 


Through an 'ecosystem strategy' that calls on contributions and collaborations on all fronts, Unicorn Group addresses the specific challenges faced by African entrepreneurs and startups, empowering entrepreneurs to build sustainable and competitive companies that can contribute to the economic growth of a content that is witnessing more and more tech-fuelled innovation every year. 2021 was a record-breaking year for Africa, with reports estimating that startups raised around $5 billion in funding, with the ‘Big Four’ - Egypt, Nigeria, South Africa and Kenya - proving to be by far the most attractive markets for investors right now.


In taking place concurrently in six different countries, the programme has been hailed as the first true pan-African incubator of its kind, with selected participants set to be incubated in Unicorn Group’s facilities, while participants from neighbouring countries can participate remotely if chosen.
