Egyptian angel investor network Cairo Angels is to host an event later this month aimed at introducing potential investors to the country’s startup ecosystem, and highlighting investment opportunities.
“The Angel Ticket” event will be held on September 27 – co-hosted by GIZ -, and will feature two panel discussions as well as a networking session.
The first panel will focus on startup opportunities, the ecosystem, and how these fit in the macro-context; with speakers to include Cornelius O’Donnell, co-founder of Rise Up; Mohamed Rahmy, managing director of Endeavor Egypt; and Dina El Shenoufy, chief information officer (CIO) at Flat6Labs.
The second panel introduces the concepts of business angels and early-stage investing. The session will walk through the experiences of the leading investors on the panel – including Hossam Allam, founder of Cairo Angels; Neveen El Tahri, chairperson at Delta Shield; and Khaled Ismail, founder of KI Angels. The panel aims to introduce the basic mechanics of early stage investing, and provide a guideline on how to become a business angel.
Cairo Angels said the organisation is hoping to attract individuals who wish to be acquainted with the startup scene and are interested in investing in startups. The objective of the event is to familiarize attendees with the ecosystem, startup opportunities and angel investment, and to attract more investors to early-stage opportunities.
Tickets are available here.
