Swvl, Egyptian Streets founders among several Egyptians on Forbes’ first Arab 30 Under 30 list

Swvl, Egyptian Streets founders among several Egyptians on Forbes’ first Arab 30 Under 30 list: Egyptian Streets founders Mohamed Khairat and Mostafa Amin, and Swvl co-founders Mostafa Kandil, Mohmoud Nouh, and Ahmed Sabah were among several Egyptians who made it to Forbes’ first-ever Arab 30 Under 30 list. 23-year-old Ali Mohammed is also featured on the list for developing a technology that allows hearing-impaired individuals to visualize sound, while footballer Mohamed Salah was recognized for being the second-highest goal scorer in the English premier league. The list honors young innovators, many of whom “are scattered across the globe as they strive to prove their mettle in countries far from home.” Khairat and Amin, who live in Melbourne and Berlin, respectively, were also included in Forbes’ annual 30 Under 30 list in Europe.
