THE THIRD LARGEST TECH HUB IN AFRICA

#TechHub #Innovation #FoodTech

Egypt accounted for 34 tech hubs in 2018, ranking third place among African countries, behind South Africa and Nigeria. Egypt benefits from a strategic geographical position, as it is located between the Northeast Africa and the Middle East. Many startups leveraging technology in different sectors have emerged in Egypt.

The GrEEK Campus is a former university building converted into a tech and innovation park. Located in the heart of Cairo, it is now home to the biggest players in the startup ecosystem. Co-working spaces like AlMaqarr and Flat6Labs are located there. With a total space of 25,000 sqm, the GrEEK Campus provides offices spaces for startups, established multinational companies, as well as media companies.

A RECOVERING ECONOMY

#Recovering #EconomicGrowth #Tourism

Despite the unstable political events that occurred in Egypt, the country is showing signs of economic recovery. Tourism, which employed 12% of the labour force before the Egyptian Revolution, is on the rebound. Egypt has hit an economy of 5.3% growth in 2018, the highest rate in 10 years. As a result, the Director of International Monetary Fund (IMF) Christine Lagarde announced that Egypt is one of the highest economy in the Middle East. Egypt’s economic reform program is supported by a $12 million loan from the IMF.

A POTENTIAL E-COMMERCE MARKET

#E-Commerce #InternetPenetration #ElectronicPayment

Egypt offers huge opportunities for the development of e-commerce.  The country hosts a population of 100 million inhabitants, including 50% of people under 30 years old, and accounts for the highest number of Internet users in the Arab world. The online commerce represents less than 1% of retail revenues today. According to Payfort’s report on the State of Payments in the Arab World, e-commerce market will reach USD 2.7 billion by 2020, which is twice as the value in 2014.

This has led to the advent of new startups like Fawry, a pioneering Electronic Payment Network. It offers a convenient and reliable way to proceed payments online and offline. In 2018, 20 million customers were using Fawry. 

Robusta, a Cairo-based tech agency, organised the first E-commerce summit in September 2018 to promote the e-commerce in the country and to tackle its challenges.
