  • Egypt Revival Alliance - AYADI ICYEN “Egypt Revival Alliance - Ayadi” is an NGO that is aimed at enriching and enhancing the role of the Civic Society as a major component of the desired comprehensive revival model of Egypt, one that we hope will be as an inspiring example to the world as “Tharir” was during the Revolution. Ayadi will enable and empower individuals, who constitute the raw material for the success of the organizations. It also acts as a “Missile Launch” Platform for selected Projects that contribute to the strategic revival objectives of Egypt. As such, it offers “structural” support; i.e. funding, partnership and formation, as well as “operational” guidance once a project is launched; i.e. consulting, collaboration, logistical assistance and –as the case may require- even physical incubation. The model is designed on a “hub” format, where the beneficiary member organizations and individuals “plug in” to receive the proper sponsorship, mentoring, resourcing and support through the array of donors, partners and volunteer participants of Ayadi. Once ready with the proper standards, they can proceed to deliver their target contribution to the overall revival vision, with follow- up, supervision and best practice sharing of our organization as appropriate.HQ: Istanbul World Trade Center, A3 7th Floor. 34149 TURKEY / T: 28, 34445, Beyoglu/Istanbul/TURKEY / T: +90 212 222 0406 / F: +90 212 210 5082/ www.oicyen.org / europe@oicyen.org ICYEN Europe: Young MUSIAD, Sutluce Mah.

  • REGIONAL VIEW ICYEN Egypt: Background: Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) account for over 90% of active enterprises in Egypt and contribute to over 80% of GDP and 75% of total employment. Yet, they remain at a clear disadvantage vis-à-vis larger businesses. According to a survey conducted by NILEX (the Egyptian stock exchange for growing medium and small companies), SMEs account for only 10% of total capital accumulation in Egypt and, while 75% of SMEs apply for banking loans, 92% of application are rejected. Egypt has a vibrant entrepreneurial population with strong potential for growth. Of the Egyptian adult population 13.1% were either actively trying to start business in 2008, or already owned and managed one that was less than three years old. Current Effort in Egypt: •On the official (government is partner) level: ITIDA ; their business incubation program TIEC Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurial Center. •Non-governmental level: Nahdet El-mahrousa; provides support to university graduates with their graduation projects. (basically scientific schools)HQ: Istanbul World Trade Center, A3 7th Floor. 34149 TURKEY / T: 28, 34445, Beyoglu/Istanbul/TURKEY / T: +90 212 222 0406 / F: +90 212 210 5082/ www.oicyen.org / europe@oicyen.org ICYEN Europe: Young MUSIAD, Sutluce Mah.

  • ICYEN REGIONAL VIEW - In Arab League countries, there appears to be no shortage of entrepreneurial aspirations among young people - Across 20 countries a median 27% of young Arabs who were not already business owners said they intended to start a business in the next 12 months - Intent to create a business ranged from a high of 45% in Sudan to a low of 9% in Jordan - Are you planning to start your own business in next 12 month ? Who said Yes Sudan 45% Algeria 25% Libya 25% Lebanon 21% Egypt 20% Tunisia 34%HQ: Istanbul World Trade Center, A3 7th Floor. 34149 TURKEY / T: 28, 34445, Beyoglu/Istanbul/TURKEY / T: +90 212 222 0406 / F: +90 212 210 5082/ www.oicyen.org / europe@oicyen.org ICYEN Europe: Young MUSIAD, Sutluce Mah.

  • ICYEN REGIONAL VIEW Example from the MENA: Entrepreneurship in Tunisia Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs and Local Development - The OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs and Local Development acts as a catalyst, increasing synergies between different areas of expertise, and raising the profile of OECD work on entrepreneurship. It is charged with disseminating best practices on the design, implementation and evaluation of initiatives to promote entrepreneurship, SME growth and local economic and employment development - What Do Entrepreneurs in Tunisia Need Most? Legal Reform Essentially we cannot promote entrepreneurs without tackling the legal framework that gives an entrepreneur the rights to their land, house and capital. , “Without paper you’re dead… capitalism works on paper. It’s the second level of reality.” This reality is the context that entrepreneurs operate in, and without the proper legal titles entrepreneurship will never translate into job creation.HQ: Istanbul World Trade Center, A3 7th Floor. 34149 TURKEY / T: 28, 34445, Beyoglu/Istanbul/TURKEY / T: +90 212 222 0406 / F: +90 212 210 5082/ www.oicyen.org / europe@oicyen.org ICYEN Europe: Young MUSIAD, Sutluce Mah.
