Travel Tech 4 Good Accelerator - Call for applications

The Travel Tech for Good Accelerator (TT4G) powered by TUI Care Foundation and enpact e.V. is a 3-month coaching for entrepreneurs, during which local and international mentors help you redefine your business model, research potential investors and clients, and bring your elevator pitch to the next level.

6 companies are selected to participate in an intensive acceleration programme, which will take place at Startup Haus Cairo. Boosting the business development and improving the company presentation will be at the core of the accelerator. Local and international mentors alongside a network of tourism professionals will advise the entrepreneurs and their team throughout the acceleration phase.

The programme ends with a Demo Day, where the founders pitch the results in front of an international jury. The winner will receive a 5.000€ prize and, importantly, access to more pitching opportunities at regional and international conferences. Special attention will be paid to business models that have a social or environmental mission and try to make a change in the Egyptian society. The deadline is Saturday, August 3rd, 2019.
