Techne Drfits Investment Track محور الإستثمار بجولات تيكني 2018

Mediocre development plans will no longer work if we need to confront the crucial phase Egypt is going through. Following the recent financial crisis and continued difficult economic environment, angel investors have been playing an important role in filling financing gaps left by banks and venture capital firms. Investing in startups is therefore more significant to the future of Egypt and its economy.

لن تنجح خطط التنمية النمطية، إذا كنا بحاجة لمواجهة المرحلة الحاسمة التي تمر بها مصر. و في أعقاب الازمات المالية الاخيرة و الصعوبات التي تواجه المناخ الاقتصادي بشكل عام، أصبح للمستثمرون التأسيسيون  دور مهم في سد الفجوات التمويلية و التي خلفتها البنوك وشركات رأس المال المخاطر .وبالتالي، فإن الاستثمار في الشركات الناشئة قد أصبح  أهمية لمستقبل مصر و اقتصادها.
