AfricArena Egypt Tour 2020 hosted by Ideaspace

This is a call to Egyptian TECH STARTUPS, INVESTORS, and African TECH ECOSYSTEM community and enthusiasts!

The Tour is coming to Cairo in partnership with Ideaspace to give the best Egyptian entrepreneurs the opportunity to share their business model and convince the expert judges why they should be advanced to pitch at the grand finale in Cape Town, South Africa.


We are looking for the best disruptive startups in Egypt to represent their nation and ecosystem at the AfricArena 2020 Summit in Cape Town. The conference will take place on November 9 and 10, but this date might change depending on the health situation at that point. 


The pre-selection pitching session will take place on July 29th during a virtual event, as part of the AfricArena 2020 Tour. The event, as per all other AfricArena Tour events, will feature a panel discussion with key players of the local ecosystem, followed by presentations from the fastest-growing tech startups in Egypt.

The selected startup will be flown and accommodated in Cape Town, take part in a series of workshops and showcase at the grand stage of the AfricArena Summit.
