Endeavor Entrepreneur Amir Barsoum, co-founder and CEO of Vezeeta, joined Endeavor Egypt’s Board of Directors in June, taking on an instrumental role in continuing to advance Endeavor’s mission to promote sustainable growth in Egypt through supporting high-impact entrepreneurship.
Board members are entrepreneurship champions who share a common commitment to help create the next generation of entrepreneurial success stories, and, through their strategic guidance and engagement, to building a thriving ecosystem that will continue to generate innovation, wealth, and employment for decades to come.
“I admire Amir’s leadership and willingness to give back to the entrepreneurship ecosystem,” remarked Mohamed Azab, Endeavor Entrepreneur and Egypt board member. “I am very happy to see Amir setting another example of the Endeavor Entrepreneur-turned-Board Member take place in Egypt and look forward to working together for the benefit of entrepreneurs in Egypt.”
In 2012, Amir founded Vezeeta, a leading digital healthcare app offering solutions in patients’ appointment booking, accessing a comprehensive directory of clinics and doctors and rating patients’ experiences. Since his selection into the Endeavor network in 2014, Amir has come to exemplify what it means to be a high-impact Endeavor Entrepreneur, leveraging support and mentorship from the Endeavor Egpyt office and connections from the Endeavor network around the world to expand and scale Vezeeta. In 2017, Vezeeta became Endeavor Catalyst’s first investment in Egypt. Now, joining as an Endeavor Egypt board member, Amir makes a strong commitment to paying it forward to the next generation of founders.
“It has been a fruitful journey with Endeavor since our selection” expressed Amir. “Through Endeavor’s strong network and quality advisors, we have managed to grow Vezeeta to where it is today operating in three MENA markets. I am thrilled to join Endeavor Egypt board and hope we continue to support Egyptian entrepreneurs in scaling up their companies.”
