Endeavor Entrepreneur Amir Barsoum, co-founder and CEO of Vezeeta, has joined Endeavor Egypt Board of Directors.
The company said Amir Barsoum now takes 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.
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.
About the company
Endeavor is leading the high-impact entrepreneurship movement around the world.
High-Impact Entrepreneurs create thriving companies that employ hundreds, even thousands of people, and generate millions in wages and revenues. And they have the power to inspire countless others as leading role models. Together, these entrepreneurs hold the key to sustained economic growth.
High-Impact Entrepreneurs dream of becoming the next great success story, but having launched in emerging countries, face considerable barriers to growth.
