Egypt's Startup Reactor is seeking applications for its fifth cycle. The six-month accelerator programme is designed to support innovative startups with high growth potential in Egypt.
The programme is a gateway to connecting entrepreneurs, investors, and mentors. Investors and mentors that participate in the programme receive an equity stake in the ventures which they choose to support.

Throughout plasma, the startups will undergo an intensive training programme on developing their business model, prototypes, brand identity, and customer base.
