These groups, each consisting of a participant from Egypt, Germany and Tunisia, will be accompanied and coached by a renowned mentor and her/his network.

There, participants will continuously assess their progress and learn about the national entrepreneurial ecosystems by meeting local experts, visiting companies, etc.
While this programme is a continuation of last year’s “Class of 2013” project, the additional value of this new initiative lies in the emphasis on horizontal learning between entrepreneurs from Egypt, Germany and Tunisia and the development of joint business projects.
