What is entrepreneurship?
We first take a look at the definition of entrepreneurship:
“the activity of setting up a business or multiple businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit”
VC4A helps entrepreneurs develop their business in Egypt and we provide every entrepreneur with equal access to opportunity in the startup process. In many economic fields, great opportunities exist due to lack of competition in Egypt because it was previously characterized by monopolized industries. Recently, this situation is changing rapidly by the introduction of new technologies and a better startup ecosystem.
