2020 AIMS Venture Forum

Held in January 2020, the second Innovate Egypt Advanced Innovation Mentoring and Support (AIMS) Venture Forum was an opportunity for participating entrepreneurial teams to test their incubation and investment readiness to future incubators, accelerators, partners, and funders. As part of this, the teams practiced their pitching styles to these investors. The panel was composed of business leaders and innovators from Egypt with expertise in business development, social innovation, and commercialization in Africa, the U.S. and Europe. This event followed an advanced, customized, eight-week training process the teams underwent with guidance from the innovation non-profit, VentureWell, as part of the Innovate Egypt program.
