Business Canvas Road Show, connecting Egypt’s green entrepreneurs during Global Entrepreneurship Week

Are you an entrepreneur with a good project idea that could address a difficult environmental problem? Do you have a hard time designing your business model or commercializing your idea? Do you want to learn about the business development process and learn from what others have tried in the business world? Join us in a week long road show that connects the country’s most promising entrepreneurs!

The country is buzzing with entrepreneurial activity and the time is right to start coming together as part of a larger community. As part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week, Innoventures, Ice Cairo and VC4Africa are pleased to announce the Business Canvas Road Show – a series of events focused on trainings in the Business Model Canvas. The road show will stop in Alexandria, Aswan, Menia and Cairo.

The Business Model Canvas is a design tool that can be used to assess and revise an existing strategy, or design a new business model completely from scratch. More importantly,  the tool is used to visualize your ideas and engage others in quality feedback. These sessions are a unique opportunity to learn from other entrepreneurs and practitioners from a variety of backgrounds.

Participate at one of the events scheduled for the week and apply online. Alternatively you can e-mail for more information. At each location entrepreneurs can participate in intensive 4 hour workshops that are designed to test your brainstorming skills and ability to drive towards meaningful solutions. Each workshop culminates with a VC4Africa meetup, an informal gathering that will connect the larger entrepreneur community in the area.

Here is an overview of the meet ups:

November 12th – Alexandria
November 14th – Menia
November 16th – Aswan
November 18th – Cairo

An opening ceremony to kick off the roadshow and week long activities will be held at the ElSawy Cultural Wheel on the 11th of November.
