Egyptian entrepreneurship is booming. With over 30 percent of the country aged between 15 and 29, and thousands of unemployed young people, SME growth in Egypt right now is coming less out of innovation and more out of necessity. In one sense, therein lies the definition of small business potential: that individual empowerment will rise directly in proportion with employment and economic levels. Delving further, that in May 2016 the executive manager of the Egyptian Banking Institute's declared SME projects as accounting for roughly 78% of jobs nationally, we begin to get a bigger picture of how influential SME growth can be for Egypt. On the other hand however, if this growth is not dealt with in a sustainable manner, the implications on the future of Egypt's economy could be dismal.
At this crucial turning point which will largely determine Egypt's future, the give first initiative is proud to partner with AWTAD whos latest masterpiece is the UP Communities.
