The Egyptian tech ecosystem has expanded massively over the past years to date; with more and more tech startups being founded, and a good number receiving funding from investors.

This growth has also seen more software engineers and developers get work with bigger tech and tech-enabled companies in the continent, and opportunities to work remotely, as part of distributed teams.

As a result, we have and still are witnessing a significant change in the future of work, and in talent development needs.

To unpack what this means, Andela is putting together this evening chat with Egypt's Tech Leaders and Influencers, who will join us on panels and a fireside chat.

Join the conversation as Andela hosts tech and business leaders from Wuzzuf, Udacity, AlMakinah, ITI and AlMaqarr.
