Egypt's startup scene is on fire. With a population of nearly 100 million, it's considered to be the 15th largest country in the world by people numbers with the majority of its population tech-savvy youth who are always looking for the next best app or the next huge tech innovation. The country has a mega appetite for tech products and online solutions giving birth to an ever-increasing number of startups and platforms in different fields. Its ecosystem is still quite young compared to other countries, which can be positive or negative. The positive is the fact that you don't have venture capitalists fighting over startups and creating inflated valuations. Startups have the benefit of numerous angel investors prepared to mentor, become real partners and who care. The negative is the fact that many startups do have a hard time finding funding, the community is small, and the ecosystem is yet to fully develop for industry-specific areas.
The positives for Egypt's tech scene are that there is enormous potential for growth with exchange rates favouring the foreign investor, the market size available, the need for innovation and the presence of brainpower available. Coworking venues are one more step in support of fledgling startups where they can gather en masse and collaborate.
