NAID Organizes AT Pre-Incubation Program


The National Academy of Information Technology for Persons with Disabilities (NAID) is organizing the Assistive Technologies (AT) Pre-Incubation Program, targeting startups and entrepreneurs with ideas of assistive technologies that can help Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) overcome their challenges.
 
The program helps develop innovative ideas and ensure their effectiveness through a pre-incubation package that includes EGP 10K worth of in-kind support and services in the form of programs, and advisory and marketing services. The program also grants access to a workspace equipped with basic furniture and Internet connection, helps entrepreneurs start their business on a large scale, and offers technical mentorship and coaching programs. This is in addition to granting access to NAID facilities and laboratories, and connecting startups to the Academy’s huge database.
 
Applicants, after submitting their applications and going through one-on-one interviews, will attend a training camp and pitch their ideas. At the end of the program, a presentation day will be organized where participants get to pitch their ideas to a lineup of experts and specialists.
 
Established in 2018, NAID is an affiliated organization to the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT). NAID mandate is to empower PwDs and support their inclusion in the society.
