Our strategy

Increase Egyptians' income and employment, and improve services like healthcare, education and energy by supporting businesses that provide specific solutions to Egypt's social problems.

The context

Egypt’s revolution is far from over, and while the newly elected government debates a variety of social issues which contributed to the uprisings, the key issues of employment and poverty are central to the stability of a participatory Egypt.

Our work

  • Agriculture & Food: Clearing barriers to markets that prevent small farmers from maximizing their income
  • Economic opportunity: Providing mentorship, advisory services, and low-level equity investment for entrepreneurs to expand their businesses
