Egypt’s Ministry of Planning and Economic Development Launches 1 Million Entrepreneurs Campaign

Egyptian entrepreneurship has always been needing more attention. In fact, Egypt has many young entrepreneurs who need directions and lessons on how to manage their business and how to keep it successful. There are also people who are creative and own brilliant ideas but don’t know how to start.

A few days ago, the government has decided to help all entrepreneurs across Egypt. The Ministry of Planning and Economic Development has launched a campaign under the name of One Million Entrepreneurs



What to Know About The Campaign

Over 10 days ago the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development represented by ‘Rowad 2030’ project has announced the launch of the ‘One Million Entrepreneurs’ campaign.

The Minister of Planning and Economic Development, Hala EL-Said stated that entrepreneurship has an important role in economic growth as it can provide creative solutions to economic challenges.

Since entrepreneurship became a part of the economy and part of its growth, it is important to support it as young entrepreneurs’ small projects can be effective and can contribute to achieving development. Entrepreneurship can solve existing problems in the market by creating new projects or new products.

It’s worth mentioning that ‘Rowad 2030’ was launched in 2017 and was funded by the National Bank of Egypt and Banque Misr. The project’s goal was to spread the culture of entrepreneurship among the youth. ‘Rowad 2030’ collaborated with the University of Cambridge and the Faculty of Economics and Political Science and provided programs like Professional Master of Entrepreneurship to those who applied.
