Egypt-based real estate developer Tatweer Misr has received Entrepreneur Middle East’s Enterprise Agility Awards 2020, in recognition of its “Outstanding Contribution to Entrepreneurship,” Invest-Gate reports.

During an official ceremony in Dubai, UAE, where leading figures and companies were awarded for their contribution to different fields, Tatweer Misr President and CEO Ahmed Shalaby virtually received the award to recognize the company’s efforts to enhance the Egyptian entrepreneurial ecosystem, as highlighted in a press release on December 22.

Speaking of the milestone, Shalaby pointed out, “It is an honor for Tatweer Misr to receive this award, it is a reflection of the company’s ongoing hard work to support entrepreneurship. I am optimistic about the entrepreneurial scene in Egypt and the region as a whole.”

“Since the company’s establishment in 2014, we have kept entrepreneurship at the core of our business activities. Tatweer Misr has given special attention to education and entrepreneurship as our two main pillars for its social development programs,” the executive added. 

Over the past six years, Tatweer Misr has supported several youth-related activities through partnering with entrepreneurs, sponsoring entrepreneurial-based events and activities, amongst other related activities aimed at directly or indirectly underpinning entrepreneurship and education in Egypt.

According to Shalaby, “Tatweer Misr played a crucial role to ratify the international day for MSME’s at the United Nations under the auspices of the International Council for Small Businesses (ICSB). Furthermore, in 2018, we launched our project Bloomfields, which entails a 90-acres educational zone designed to become a hub for entrepreneurial education in Egypt, the Middle East, and North Africa.”

To bring a unique experience to adventurers and nature-lovers to IL Monte Galala, Tatweer Misr joined forces with the British-born Egyptian adventurer, entrepreneur, and speaker Omar Samra to establish the first luxury base camp on Ain Sokhna’s Galala Mountains.
