The primary objective of this assessment exercise is to identify trends related to green and sustainable entrepreneurship practices currently taking place in Egypt, with special emphasis on the e-waste recycling industry.
Although the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Egypt encloses different types of stakeholders, the assessment was limited to closely studding incubators and accelerators. The report also aims to identify and list potential host incubators and accelerators that could support the design and launching of an e-waste recycling Programme as well as the emergence of an e-waste recycling industry under the SRI project.
The assessment is informed by both primary and secondary research endeavours. A preliminary desk research was undertaken to garner an overview of nationwide entrepreneurial trends and updated development, while field interviews and consultations were held with a selective sample based on the findings of the preliminary research.
The preliminary research stage culminated in the gathering of information on an average of 45 organizations and entities of interest. Elimination criteria were designed and applied to filter the identified entities of interest for the second research stage of interviews. 15 interviews were conducted as a result of this filtration.
