Realizing Innovation through Social Entrepreneurship in Egypt

RISE is a new kind of organization – one that believes in the capacity, creativity, and ingenuity of Egyptians, and those who love Egypt, to unleash innovative solutions to the country’s biggest development challenges.

RISE is a global nonprofit that is leveraging its network of top experts, investors, and researchers to accelerate entrepreneurship for development in Egypt. 

RISE is a "Think and Do Tank" that links capacity-building for growth stage social enterprises with world class research to enable an evidence-based scale-up of its portfolio companies.

RISE promotes collaboration across sectors and facilitates and triggers important conversations between stakeholders in the private sector, civil society, and policymaking communities about the roles of impact investing, public-private partnerships, and research in accelerating development. 

We are inspired by what’s possible today, motivated by what’s needed for tomorrow and united by a love for Egypt.
