Seven Egyptian startups have been selected to represent the country in the 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in The Hague, Netherlands, June 3-5. While in the Netherlands, representatives of the seven firms will have opportunities to network with over 1,000 other entrepreneurs and over 300 investors from around the world.

The annual GES conference brings together top entrepreneurs, investors, thought leaders, corporate partners, and policymakers. This year's Global Entrepreneurship Summit will focus its activities on five critical areas: Agriculture/Food, Connectivity, Energy, Health, and Water.

At a May 20 press conference hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Charge d'Affaires Thomas Goldberger noted, "These seven Egyptian companies were selected because of their drive, vision, and readiness to meet the challenge of scaling up regionally and globally to maximize their impact. We look forward to these startups showcasing their accomplishments on the world-wide stage of GES."
