“We can now dare to dream”; this is what the Egyptians shouted out in Tahrir Square during the 25th of January revolution. Not only was this moment the start of a turn on the political arena but it was also the initiating spark for millions to find their passion, identify their dreams and work on achieving them. The authors take you through a journey that starts by the ‘pharaohs’, moving to the initiator of modern Egypt ‘Mohamed Ali’ and the entrepreneurship God father ‘Talaat Harb’, and arriving to the present day with the ‘GEM’ report insights. The book also presents the theory of change which is a graphical tool that explains the activities and assumptions required to achieve the desired change. Seventeen key ecosystem enablers have been interviewed to get their insights; from the government, private sector, investors, NGOs, media, international donors, accelerators, universities and lawyers. Eleven successful and inspiring entrepreneurs have been interviewed; they shared a lot of thoughts and stories about the journey and how it started, challenges, opportunities they faced, the hard work and the determination to success. The book is featuring the amazing story and insights of the Egyptian born entrepreneur, mentor, venture capitalist and educator, Dr. Ossama Hassanein, who managed in the last 40 years over $1 billion of international technology funds in diverse leadership roles including Managing Director of Newbury Ventures, Chairman of TechWadi, and Chairman of the Rising Tide Fund in Silicon Valley.
