Area 31 Newsletter

Thursday 10th of December 2015

Dear Area 31 Entrepreneurs and Friends,

As we come close the the end of the year, Area 31 continues to offer opportunities nonstop. On Monday and Wednesday, Area 31 will host the pre-launch of the new intake of IE's Venture Lab accelerator with professor Paris l'Etraz. On Tuesday, the teams in the present intake of the Incubator in Area 31 will have their last December Get Together for sharing challenges and achievements as they get ready to move on to the next stage.


This weekend IE is participating in The RiseUp Summit in Cairo. A great opportunity to meet entrepreneurs from all over the MENA-region, investors from around the globe, and learn from those who made it big! If you have a food startup, apply to Prometheus Accelerator Program by Reimagine Food. Finally, get to know how Milingual is changing the way languages are taught, and how to live another language at your own city! And coming up soon on our blog... the announcement of the teams selected for the next intake of IE's Incubator in Area 31. Stay put!
