On the horizon

Pride Capital will be organizing a workshop to talk over big topics in fintech. The workshop will be on insurance tech, and how technology can deliver affordable, convenient health insurance. The event — with keynote speakers including Misr Life Insurance Chairman Ahmed Abdel Aziz and Vezeeta Founder Amir Barsoum — will be held on Monday, 19 February, at the Greek Campus on Tahrir.

If adding the word “blockchain” to the name of a listed company can quadruple its share price, what happens if you add it to a country? That’s the question the T20, a group of Egyptian alumni of top global business schools, will be asking next week at a what they’re billing as a “fireside chat” on blockchain technologies. Speakers will include:

  • EGX chairman Mohamed Farid
  • Royal Group (UAE) risk management manager Abdur-Raheem Mungrue
  • IBM Egypt CTO Mahmoud Badawi

Want to attend? The closed-door fireside chat takes place on Tuesday, 20 February at 7:30pm and is open to T20 members and select invitees from the larger business community. Enterprise readers may register here to request an invite. Non-members of T20 will be asked to pay a token admission fee.
