Why Mobipreneur?

The mobile applications field is now one of the ripe fields that most people are focusing on. There are so many different platforms and people’s need for applications on the go is increasing everyday. Adobe, RIM, Google and Nokia definitely have the right set of tools to help make mobile development easy, fast and reliable. And this is what people need a simple and reliable application to serve their needs on their mobile phones. Hence Mobiprenuer is aimed to shed the light on mobile development on different platforms.

Why Egypt Now?

The recent line of political upheavals in Egypt is re-shaping political, economic and social structures of the country, which implies:
- Revamp of the country’s constitution, legislative field, and economic situation
- Revision and adjustment of values in accordance to the new reality
- Planning and working towards a new vision of the country

Now is the time for innovation and finding new techniques to increase profitability and the field of mobile development offers a wide variety of applications that are becoming more of a necessity than a mere good to have.
