10+ year long worth of business experience
From 100+ top entrepreneurs in Egypt
published in one book.
Just like you, venturing into building my own business at the age of 19, after a failed attempt at 17, I had so little business knowledge to rely on; I knew that I shouldn’t rely on experimental knowledge only, so I ventured into various learning materials as the needs brought me.
I have collected, digested and relied on an extensive library of over 70 books exclusively for entrepreneurship, business strategy, management, marketing and various business disciplines and I have extended it with various online materials, courses and MOOCs, currently listed at http://library.egypreneur.com/survival/
In 2012, as I decide to grow into the role of the long term CEO of the company I started, I decided to solidify and build up my executive capacity , I wanted to digest everything that I learnt and put together a structure to my business knowledge, so I created “The Executive Development Program” to approach the next phase of my entrepreneurial journey.
I shared the program with my team who mostly found the practical knowledge and digested experience very effective, as it launches as a training product https://www.egypreneur.com/execws in the few rounds conducted, the need for sharing this knowledge on a wider scope started to become more apparent.
As my journey in business approaches its 10 years mark, I thought of putting together this knowledge in a structured and beneficial form for others and basic principles of what I think is the most necessary skills and knowledge needed for anyone who is starting an entrepreneurial journey.
Then I thought that would be very limiting with one-man’s vision of how should it go, there are so many members at Egypreneur who are way better than myself at each and every part I’m tackling in this book, so I decided to take the structure and outlines I have put together and interview 100+ Egyptian entrepreneurs to bring the real stories and anecdotes that would make it easier for anyone to digest these business lessons.
I believe for young generation getting in business conceiving a large number of sophisticated principles can be very tough and would take an exaggeratedly long time, the purpose of this book is to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge about being your own boss , starting and scaling companies in any economic sector, this growth guide should be your compass throughout your entrepreneurial journey.
As this book is also available in English, I hope it’ll be shedding the lights of the entrepreneurial experiments by Egyptian entrepreneurs to the rest of the world and use the same language of business to position Cairo on the map of global business activity.
