Did you know that in 2017, Cairo was named one of the top 7 cities worldwide to launch a startup, according to Starting Things Up? The formidable Egyptian capital was featured in the list alongside other big names, such as Beijing, London, and Sydney. More Recently, Egypt has been recognised as one of the MENA region’s strongest contenders in the startup business scene. As a result, it came as no surprise when we found out that a group of Egyptian entrepreneurs won the Empowerment Prize at the recently held Seedstars Global Summit. And so, without further ado, it is our pleasure to introduce to you the winners: Egyptian Nursing App, 7keema!
Who is this victorious team known as 7keema? According to their synopsis on Google Play, 7keema is Egypt’s 1st on-demand home nursing services app. They provide safe, quick, and high-quality services covering a wide range of nursing care, through registered and licensed professional nurses from both genders. They also add, “A unique customer experience is something we guarantee in 7keema as we provide our services according to the international standards of healthcare quality and infection control.” It is also worth mentioning that their rating on Google Play is 4.3 based on 230 reviews.
Other details about the app include the fact that it is owned by HealthApp Group, provides care 24/7, and is in the process of reaching out to other countries in the MENA region. Facebook mentions that the application comprises a wide selection of nursing services, such as basic care, catheter, wound care, ostomy care, hospital shift, home shift, hospice care, post- hospital, post-pregnancy, Alzheimer’s, and elderly care.
7keema’s journey with Seedstars started in 2018 when it was named best Egyptian startup at the Seedstars World Competition, and the first of its kind in the Middle East. This amazing triumph led to their representation of Egypt in the Seedstars Summit in Lausanne, Switzerland earlier this month, along with the rest of the global winners. And now here we are, celebrating their well-deserved win of the Rising Tide Foundation Empowerment Prize! The title of the Seedstars Global Winner went to Blended, an Argentinian startup that serves as a platform which optimises communication between different members of an educational community. In case you’re a fellow entrepreneur who is interested to know more about this competition, you can always check their extensively informative website. The words of Alisée de Tonnac, Co-Founder and CEO of Seedstars, during the opening of the summit pretty much sum up the organisation’s spirit and mission, “We consider ourselves part of an athletic team in the elite section, and we are here to win. That is Seedstars. We are the unexpected seeds, hustling for high impact.”
