First edition of Startupbootcamp-Pride accelerator kicks off

First edition of Startupbootcamp-Pride accelerator kicks off: Pharos’ Pride Capital and global seed program organizer Startupbootcamp launched yesterday the first edition of the Startupbootcamp-Pride FinTech Cairo accelerator program, according to an emailed statement (pdf). Eleven fintech startups have joined the initial six-month program and were selected from a pool of over 100 applicants. “Startups will benefit from hands-on expertise in business model development, mentorship from industry experts, office space in the heart of Cairo, seed-funding — with the current round being fully funded by Pharos Holding — and access to a global network of investors and corporate professionals from across the financial industry.” Our friends at Pharos Holding, along with industry heavyweights such as the International Finance Corporation, German development agency GIZ, Visa, Ayady, AlexBank, Sanad’s Entrepreneurship Academy, and the Export Development Bank, are supporters of the program.
