AMIDEAST Egypt and Citi Foundation are launching a new two-year Youth Entrepreneurship Program that aims to build a new generation of entrepreneurs by helping them get their business ideas off the ground through training, resources, coaching, incubation and real-life application.
AMIDEAST is now accepting applications until Jan. 31st from Egyptian entrepreneurs age 18 to 30 with breakthrough ideas, or those who've just started their business.
