Yes, USAID is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement the Business Egypt Activity.
The goal of Business Egypt is to expand the quality and quantity of job opportunities, especially for women and youth, and to increase sales revenues and investment in the local market. The activity will support the establishment, growth, and competitiveness of productive and innovative startups and promising micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) by creating a vibrant and high functioning ecosystem of competitive innovative enabling institutions that accelerate economic development in Egypt.
Business Egypt should achieve expected results that contribute to USAID/Egypt Development Objective “Inclusive economic development accelerated” as measured by new firms, revenue growth, investments, and generation of employment opportunities as a result of USAID assistance. Women should account for at least 50 percent of target beneficiaries served by USAID-supported entities by the fifth year.
