What is AUC Venture Lab?


AUC Venture lab is Egypt’s first university-based startup accelerator program and a leading accelerator in Africa and the MENA region. We support innovation-driven and passionate entrepreneurs looking to turn their solutions and technologies into viable businesses. Since 2013, we have accelerated more than 150 startups covering multiple sectors. We believe in evidence-based entrepreneurship and with the support of our expanded network, we provide you with the right business and specialized know-how, tools and resources to connect with the entrepreneurial world and reach your full potential.
