Africa Together Program

In light of ITIDA strategy to boost the exports of local IT firms (Egypt on Exports), ITIDA announces the launch of the “Africa Together” program in cooperation with the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services, and events for the ICT and consumer technology markets, (IDC)

The Africa Together program is among the Go to Market activities that ITIDA is implementing to support Egyptian companies penetrate key markets. The program aims at supporting Egyptian ICT firms in penetrating high-growth markets across the African continent through joint partnership and market development efforts, further enhancing the role of Egypt's ICT industry as a key contributor to the country's economic growth. As part of the ‘Africa Together’ program, IDC will match the capabilities of Egyptian ICT companies with the needs of African channel and end-user companies. This match-making process will culminate in an event, where IDC will bring Egyptian ICT players together with leading end-user organizations and channels from the West and East Africa regions to discuss the potential for future cooperation and partnerships.

All Egyptian IT firms are welcomed to apply for the program, in this regard kindly read thoroughly “how to apply” and the required steps below:
