Sherketak is a start-up accelerator designed to support and empower the next generation of Egyptian entrepreneurs and contribute to the development of the start-up ecosystem in Egypt. Our program offers funding, mentorship, training, and a wide variety of perks and benefits, with the aim of arming entrepreneurs with the necessary tools, resources, and contacts to develop their strategies and expand their businesses so that they may thrive in today’s competitive economy.
Sherketak offers two 4-month acceleration cycles annually. During each cycle, we work extensively with each team to help them develop their businesses while improving their knowledge and skills in entrepreneurship; all in preparation for respective business pitches to investors. Each cycle culminates in a Demo Day, where founders present to a large audience of potential investors. Our support does not end on Demo Day, though, as we continue to support our entrepreneurs throughout their journey
Sherketak implements a new model of startup funding. Our program offers funding from EGP 100,000-500,000 for teams to turn their business ideas into a reality with 4-8% equity stake in return. We support up to 30 companies per cycle in our accelerator program, as we offer a wide range of business, legal, technical and entrepreneurial support.
