AUC Venture Lab, Egypt's first university-based accelerator, received the Top Accelerator in Africa title at the Global Startup Awards that took place at the GSA Africa Summit in Ethiopia on October 25-26, 2023. This recognition comes after V-Lab landed the Top Accelerator in North Africa in June and the Top Challenger Award for the MENA region by UBI Global in January. AUC Venture Lab collaborated with AUC Innovation Hub to host a roundtable discussion titled Technology and Scaling, which focused on finding talent for startups, connecting them to corporates, fostering an entrepreneurial mindset and building networks in new markets. The exclusive event was moderated by V-Lab Director, Ayman Ismail, and involved leaders from Microsoft Egypt, Orascom Development and founders from V-Lab startups: iConnect, Velents, Menthum and Klickit.
