A small town on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, Dahab in a previous life was a Bedouin fishing village. It is now considered to be one of the best diving destinations, which is definitely a bonus for coworking souls who wish to skip out for a lunchtime chat with the local marine life. There are 3 major parts to Dahab: Masbat that includes the Bedouin village of Asalah in the north, Mashraba the touristic haven awash in hotels and Medina which includes the Laguna area that is famous for shallow-water windsurfing. You will find a plethora of camps and hostels in the Asalah region, as this is where the backpackers into diving and snorkeling the Red Sea hang out.
Egypt as a country has become more visible in its post-revolution period. You will see Egyptian entrepreneurship thriving everywhere from street vendors to expat founders as innovation and resilience is a deeply embedded culture in the Egyptian psyche. The country is an ideal launching ground for a startup due to it being one of the most populous countries in Africa, a top producer of engineers and a major influencer in the Arab world. Coworking venues are giving the intrepid and innovative locals an alternative as a place to work, connect and collaborate in a city that is filled with opportunities.
Despite the main startup ecosystem largely being in Cairo, Dahab still has its own regional scene happening, albeit on a smaller scale. Local businesses, startups and entrepreneurs are seeking out the resources to help them bring them dreams to life and coworking spaces are a part of the supportive network they need. Egyptians are becoming more tech-savvy since the revolution with online payments and credit card usage booming. So in a country where over 50% of the population is under the age of 54, there is a lot of ambitious talent lurking.
