As part of the cooperation between IEEE Young Professional Affinity Group and Misr El-Kheir Foundation, it is our pleasure to  announce the latest program organized by GESR:

GESR Technology Pre-Incubation Program

GESR Technology Pre-Incubation Program is designed for projects that are heading toward developing a technology-based physical  product with commercial potential in one of the following sectors: Energy, Water, Food and Agriculture, Education, and Health. Each  cycle of the program is tailored to support technology-based and hardware entrepreneurial projects from the early stages of their  journey to the startup-ready stage over 4 months. During this period, potential entrepreneurs can work in a risk-reduced environment to  validate their ideas for market viability and technical feasibility before approaching business incubators and/or investors.

The support package includes:

  • Prototyping financial support up to 5,000 EGP. Market/product validation and product development workshops.
  • Business and technology consultation from GESR network of technical and business experts.
  • Accessibility to GESR Technology Innovation Lab equipment, space, and prototyping facilities.
