“Celebrating TA telecom’s achievements with friends is uplifting. We are happy for all what we’ve accomplished and grateful for all the support we’ve got, especially from Endeavor’s entrepreneurs all over the world who continue to inspire us to keep going, achieve more and maximize our impact.” This is how Amr Shady, Founder & Executive Chairman of TA telecom, described the celebration event for TA telecom.
TA telecom celebrated their achievements for 2015 with friends, family and partners over dinner at Omar Fathy’s amazing new restaurant, The Eatery, at Cairo Festival City on Monday the 15th of Feb. The attendees enjoyed the culinary delights of the Eatery while networking amongst others. The event was attended by the Endeavor Family on all levels: entrepreneurs, mentors, board members and staff.
As soon as you enter through the door, you find people smiling, chatting and laughing. Entrepreneurs were talking about their entrepreneurial stories and journeys with mentors and attendees of the event. The whole event was reflecting the entrepreneurial spirit that could be clearly seen in TA telecom’s achievements as well as the presence of several Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
TA telecom had a lot to celebrate as it was a milestone-rich 2015 for the company. TA telecom won the Red Herring Top 100 Global Award in recognition of technological advancement in the mobile and analytics industry. It was also selected among three finalists for the Outstanding Mature Business Award as part of the 2015 Africa awards for Entrepreneurship. The Financial Times dubbed TA telecom as a “local hero” when it comes to the challenges facing the tech startup scene in Egypt.
