TIEC believes that youth are powerful agents of change, actively working together to find solutions to present-day problems in order to create a better future. Their talents and abilities must be nurtured and reinforced as they become mature and influential adult leaders who will build new opportunities for new generations
The TIEC Ambassadors Program (TAP), sponsored by the Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center, gives Egyptian university students the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship first-hand and to broaden their understanding of technology innovation. Through workshops, seminars and conferences in various parts of Egypt, the program is designed to help prepare these participants in youth leadership development, innovation management and entrepreneurial skills, and it promotes mutual understanding between the ICT cluster and university students.
Through the TIEC Ambassadors Program, 2 students will be chosen from eachEgyptian University (public and private) to represent their university at TIEC and to promote TIEC initiatives in their ICT collages. The chosen students will form a league of ambassadors that meet monthly at a different university premises every time to share knowledge and experiences. The League will also participate in an annual conference, related to the theme of ‘innovation’ and “entrepreneurship”. The program will provide opportunities for participants to interact with the ICT community and with mentors.
