We just published a new feature on hardwarethings.org.
In 2015, the President of Egypt launched the Egypt Makes Electronics (EME) initiative. The ultimate aim is to make Egypt a leader in electronics manufacturing by attracting larger multinationals eyeing the EMEA region as well as subsidize startup and production costs for local hardware startups.
From Cairo, Rawnaa Al-Masry writes about the progress of this initiative so far, what limitations still exist for hardware entrepreneurs in the country, and what's coming next.
