Covering all corners of Egypt, from the iconic Aswan to the Nile Delta where the river meets the Mediterranean Sea, Techne Drifts is kicking off across 14 cities this month.
Techne Drifts, now running its 4th edition, is Egypt’s first roadshow competition across the country’s governorates, in a country-wide startup competition that will see three hundreds of entrepreneurs come together to redesign the future of the nation.
Each Drift is a one-day event geared towards strengthening local startup ecosystems and empowering entrepreneurs across the country’s most remote corners. Taking on the road, the Techne team will gather the most inspiring movers and shakers of the region’s startup scene, to host a series of talks, workshops, and orientations in 14 cities, for entrepreneurs to gain knowledge and take part in the competition.
After each drift, 3 to 5 startups will be selected in each city to pitch in front of a jury at each regional semi-final: Delta, North Upper Egypt, South Upper Egypt, and Canal. Every Saturday, we will be hosting the semi-finals, where three championing startups will be selected in each region, as well as two from Cairo and Alexandria.
At the end of the Drifts, 14 semi-finalists will get the chance to pitch at the finals in Cairo, on March 31st.
