ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The MINT Incubator is designed to support startups with no strings attached. We will not take equity and will not provide debt to the startups enrolled in the program. The only thing we expect from startups is their passion and commitment to take their business to the next level.
The MINT Incubator program is an intensive 3-month incubation program that is designed for businesses that already have a product, not just an idea and aims to provide the selected startups with the opportunity to take their business to the next level and to become a more attractive investment opportunity for startup investors.
Each startup will be paired with a top class mentor who will provide customized support and guidance throughout the program. The startups will benefit from a series of unique workshops, provided by EGBank and its partners, that will address key areas that will accelerate the startup’s business and enhance the team’s know-how, including finance, sales & marketing, growth hacking, accounting basics, legal & governance basics, how to attract and retain talent, how to think about your brand, and much more.
The MINT Incubator program will also provide a number of resources and benefits to selected startups, including free tools and applications and a co-working space in the heart of downtown Cairo for the duration of the program. The program will also facilitate a number of networking sessions, including most importantly the demo day at the end of the incubation period, where all of the top startup angel and venture capital investors in the region will be invited to attend.
