Plug and Play Egypt

Based in Egypt, this platform will be focused on Digitalizing both Private and Public entities. We are building a vibrant ecosystem to foster the collaboration and exchange of experiences among corporations, startups, and institutions.

Building on the momentum and the exponential growth of the Egyptian tech startups’ sector, the partnership aims to cement Egypt as a center for innovation-driven entrepreneurship in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Our Partner: ITIDA

The Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) is the executive arm of the Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology for spearheading the development of IT in Egypt.

It is Egypt’s engine for spreading technology, driving innovation, and supporting foreign investors seeking to enhance their global offering from Egypt, the global hub for IT/ITES and technology innovation.

Our partner: USAID Economic Governance Activity

The Economic Governance Activity (EGA), a USAID funded project, is part of the bilateral agreement between the Government of Egypt (GoE) and the United States on inclusive economic governance (Grant Agreement no. 263-306 signed on September 30, 2019, and issued through Presidential decree no. 643 for 2020). EGA is a five-year activity (2020-2025) which DAI Global LLC implements. EGA supports the investment climate in Egypt through enhancing economic governance and promoting administrative and institutional development in line with Egypt’s Sustainable Development Strategy (SDS) 2030; National Anti-Corruption Strategy; and the Administrative Reform Vision of Egypt. In doing so, the project supports the efforts of the GoE to enhance the quality of public administration through adopting more inclusive and efficient tools that reflect the needs and priorities of citizens and the private sector, thus promoting a favorable investment climate in Egypt.
