talabat, the region’s leading local tech organisation, inaugurated its new 10,000 sqM headquarters in Cairo, in an event attended by government officials and industry leaders, reconfirming the strategic importance of the Egyptian market to the company, and its plans to create local employment opportunities, support local businesses through technology, and provide a seamless customer experience.
The event, which included several of talabat’s key regional management, was attended in the presence of Dr Ibrahim Ashmawy, Deputy Minister of Supply for Investment and Chairman of the Internal Trade Development Authority who delivered a keynote speech on the Egyptian government’s vision to create an enabling environment for e-commerce in Egypt.

Egypt is a clear strategic choice for talabat, given its large pool of young talents with an eagerness to tap into their potential. We are dedicated to upskilling our teams on the latest and best technologies in order to support the solid infrastructure built by the Egyptian government, which allows us to create a talabat tech hub, right here in Egypt.”

Our new Egyptian office embodies our long-term commitment towards the Egyptian economy and further cultivating digital skills in Egyptian talent.
