RiseUp Takes Egyptian Entrepreneurs to Build Qatar’s FIFA 2022 World Cup

The ever-sizzling team behind Egypt’s biggest entrepreneurial conference, RiseUp, is bringing Challenge 22 to Egypt, an incredibly cool innovation award for entrepreneurs, scientists, and pioneers who have crazy cool ideas for the hosting of the the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar while building a sustainable, economically diverse future for the region.

Launched by Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), Challenge 22 aims to attract talents from 10 Arab countries to propose innovative solutions for major events, whether in Qatar, across the Arab world, or in other regions around world. Now running its second cycle, the challenge is coming to Egypt, where they will give Egyptian innovators opportunities to build just about anything in the fields of sustainability, health and safety, and fan experience.

Hosted by RiseUp in their Downtown Cairo landmark hub, the challenge ambassadors will offer an information session to discuss all the opportunities available and how people can join. The event will kick off today at the GrEEK Campus’ Auditorium Hall at 7 PM.
