- How did TEDxBinnenhof | Ideas from Europe inspire your mission and/or event?
The Netherlands, together with The District-Egypt, do organize on the 7th of April:

We hope to inspire and encourage young entrepreneurs from Egypt to have confidence in their ideas, initiatives and formats by hosting this event. 6 young entrepreneurs from Egypt will get the floor to present their Renewable Energy ideas or initiatives to an audience of Egyptian and Dutch entrepreneurs, government officials, Investment Institutes and NGO’s.
