For the last three years, HSBC has been the proud sponsor of the NilePreneurs Academy, a Central Bank of Egypt initiative housed at Nile University. The programme aims to develop the skills and capabilities of young entrepreneurs by:
- Incubating innovators and business concepts that will fuel the economy
- Increasing the employment opportunities for young people
- Developing SME contributions to the national economy
- Integrating the informal economy into the formal economy
Entrepreneurs from a broad range of sectors, including fintech, transportation, social and sustainability, agri-tech and e-commerce, have benefited from the programme since its launch in 2019. To date, 12 start-ups have graduated, going on to excel in their chosen fields.
NilePreneurs is just one of the ways HSBC demonstrates its commitment to supporting the Egyptian economy.
