RISE Collaboratives

In November 2017, RISE Egypt launched the first of a series of Solutions Summits to create systems changes by serving as a platform for action toward sector-based Collaboratives.

RISE Collaboratives take a multi-stakeholder approach to supporting the evidence-based scale-up of social innovations across sectors, particularly those addressing the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

The focus of the 1st Annual RISE Solutions Summit, held on November 29-30, 2017 at the Townhouse Gallery in downtown Cairo, was Evidence-Based Innovation & Investment in Education. The objective was to inspire collaboration towards evidence-based innovation and investment for education through sharing knowledge, creating dialogue, and growing tangible opportunities for impact. 

Over 100 individuals representing a select group of education entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, experts and capacity-building organizations convened in a one-of- a-kind, hands on experience to collaborate on an agenda to push evidence-based education innovation and investment forward in Egypt.
