Know More About the Program

2,000 students and young graduates from all over Egypt get a chance to join our comprehensive program that offers training, invests in innovation and entrepreneurship and helps advance their careers

Program components
  • We will enroll students in the Developing Android Apps course offered by Udacity (www.udacity.com) and offer support on-the-ground to help get them certified. We will Arabize the Udacity platform so that it becomes available to the entire public, but we will only provide scholarships for certifications for our 2,000 program participants.
  • For the most promising talent identified during the Udacity course, we will further invest in their development by sponsoring them for an advanced curriculum.
  • The Udacity course will give our program participants the fundamental know-how to build a great Android app. Program participants will be invited to enter startup competitions where a total of USD 200,000 will be awarded to the winners to help them commercialize their apps. Throughout this process, we will make sure program participants have access to coaches and mentors to enable their success.
  • Additionally, we want to advance the professional careers of our program participants by preparing them for the job market and connecting them with reputable employers. We plan to provide interview and CV training, hold career fairs, and create a matchmaking portal among other things.
  • Last but not least, for high performing participants of the program, we will help them gain regional and international exposure by flying them for visits with top global employers (including Google HQ in Mountain View, California).
