Good afternoon,
Here’s your weekly roundup of Middle East AI news!
This week’s edition includes news from Egypt’s new AI incubator! Rowad 2030, an entrepreneurship initiative launched by Egypt’s Ministry of Planning and Economic Development in 2017, has opened its AI Incubator programme for applications from startups.
Rowad 2030 plans to create nine incubators in conjunction with Egyptian universities, including two AI Incubators (one in Ain Shams University in Cairo and one in Alexandria University) in partnership with the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT). The Rowad 2030 initiative previously stated that the AI Incubator programme will accommodate 24 startups, but this was not confirmed in this week’s announcement.
Link below, plus other stories from around the region.
Stay safe and have a great weekend!
