Building Sudan's Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

Working with over a decade of combined experience in the fields of Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Technology, our founders have committed themselves to build the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Sudan and helping startups to flourish.

Over the past 10 years, our founders began exploring & introducing entrepreneurship to Sudan through research and case studies of enablers in the UAE, Egypt, Jordan, and Nigeria, to obtain a better understanding of how they’ve reached where they are today in hopes of achieving the same in our country.Throughout the years our founders have been traveling, meeting people & attending conferences from Singapore to Silicon Valley, Milano to Johannesburg, going across Turkey & Dubai up to The Hague & Medellin learning and observing how these ecosystems function, followed by trying to implement the same in Sudan taking in mind the local culture, uniqueness & diversity of Sudanese entrepreneurs.
