Cairo, Egypt - Seedstars, a swiss-based company that brings together key stakeholders focused on driving technological change in emerging markets, will open their first hub in Egypt, Seedspace Cairo, this 4th of May 2018 at 5:00pm, in an inaugural event where different actors of the local ecosystem and international community will take part. It’s going to be the first Seedspace in the MENA region, consolidating more than 4 years of activities in the Egyptian startup ecosystem.

Promoting entrepreneurship as a lifestyle, Seedspace Cairo aims to continue supporting the entrepreneurship scene by offering the different actors a “home” from which Seedstars will deploy their different acceleration and academic programs, as well as be closer to Egyptian changemakers. Seedspace Cairo will have a coworking area, offering a wide range of membership plans, from single-desks areas to private offices for larger teams. Additionally, Seedspace Cairo will have a coliving area, an accommodation alternative for those wishing to come to Cairo and experience the efervescent entrepreneurial ecosystem.

“It is a strategic step for us at Seedstars, so that we can be closer to the community we have gathered over the last years, to continue supporting them 365 days throughout the year, with different activities, events and, of course, a great place from where businesses can be created, grown and scaled” stated Romulo Navarrete, Head of Operations at Seedspace.

The event will also play host to the Cairo chapter of Seedstars World, the global seed-stage startup competition for emerging markets.
