Bringing the ladies together
Last year when Startup MENA started working in Egypt, one of our main objectives was to help establish a sustainable Egyptian women entrepreneur network. We started organizing quarterly meetups for the female founders to help support each other and share their experience and knowledge. Today, we are so proud to announce that yesterday the female community we started to gather a year and half later organized the very first event run entirely by the female entrepreneurs. The meetup hosted startup founders, stake holder & mentors.
Noha Mahmoud the operations manager at Juicelabs announced few new rules to help make the meetups even more fruitful and beneficial to the ladies. Each month, all the ladies should set a measurable goal or objective, they can then ask for help from the other attendees to help them accomplish that goal before the next meetup. Ladies offered peer to peer mentorship to each other, each in her area of Expertise. The meetups will also include a different themed talk or training each time provided by one of the leaders in a certain field, to help the female founders learn more about new work aspects that will help them expand the horizons of their startups.
So, Stay tuned to a new strong network of women entrepreneurs growing up fast, and come and join us in our next meetup.
