In an interview with AfricaLive, Ehab Abdel Rahman the Provost of the American University in Cairo, has set out an ambitious vision for Egypt’s future led by innovation, research and entrepreneurship.
Highlighting AUC’s ambitious plans to drive innovation in the region, the Provost told AfricaLive, “Our next milestone is to consolidate all elements of entrepreneurship and innovation under one roof. By 2026, we will have a pioneering facility in Egypt, where all aspects of entrepreneurship and innovation will coexist, creating an ecosystem that we hope will benefit the university and Egypt as a whole.
It is worth mentioning that Eltoukhy Learning Factory for Innovation and Entrepreneurship serves as an open space for anyone with an idea, providing resources and equipment to build prototypes.
It’s a place where you can keep iterating until your idea comes to life.”
