dc.description<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <p>The American University in Cairo Venture Lab (V-Lab) is the first university-based startup accelerator in Egypt. Oxfam&#8217;s Youth Participation and Employment (YPE) programme in Egypt partnered with V-Lab to support youth in entrepreneurship and business startups. V-Lab provides dynamic business support to entrepreneurs with innovative and scalable ideas. Its work has brought about change in Egypt&#8217;s culture and business environment. In this case study, YPE and V-Lab make useful recommendations on how to strengthen the sustainability and growth of entrepreneurship in Egypt. V-Lab&#8217;s other initiatives include connecting graduates with potential investors. The accelerator&#8217;s startups have played an important role during the COVID-19 pandemic by helping to create employment opportunities, both directly and indirectly.</p> </body> </html>en_US
