Entlaq x Paymob a powerhouse alliance for Egypt’s startups!September 5, 2023
Last week, Entlaq Holding proudly engaged in a dynamic dialogue alongside experts in economics, business, and regulation. Together, we delved deep into Egypt’s business landscape, spotlighting challenges facing enterprises and startups alike. It was heartening to witness a genuine exchange focused on nurturing the private sector’s vitality.
Here are our key takeaways, setting the stage for future discussions and recommendations:
1️⃣ Progress Beyond Regulations: The missing link lies not in regulations, but in robust monitoring, evaluation, and execution frameworks. Bridging the gap between businesses and government incentives demands concrete implementation stories to spark success.
2️⃣ Balanced Ecosystems: Regulations are integral to growth, but too many can stifle innovation. Egypt’s ecosystem thrived by embracing flexible regulations, especially for pioneering sectors. Deregulation safeguards innovation’s freedom while protecting traditional sectors.
3️⃣ Elevating Investment Initiatives: Simply waiting for investment won’t suffice. To secure our spot in global value chains, proactive international engagement is vital. Look at the triumphs of agencies like Tourism Promotion Authority and ITIDA in promoting sectoral investments.
4️⃣ Empowering the Underserved: Inclusivity means more than legal parity. Geographic outreach and tailored support are crucial for micro and small enterprises, driving equitable regional growth beyond established centers.
5️⃣ Fueling Entrepreneurship: Government’s pivotal role encompasses building capacities, improving financial accessibility, and fortifying technological infrastructure. A strategic roadmap for the entrepreneurial ecosystem is our shared vision.
As we move towards a more robust entrepreneurial landscape, these insights will guide our way. Let’s craft a strategy that nurtures innovation, empowers enterprises, and propels Egypt’s private sector into a thriving future!
