The Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) through its Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center (TIEC) intends to partner with up to six operators (Operator(s)) to program and operate six ITIDA-rented spaces. Each space is to function as Community Innovation Hub (CIH). The CIHs are located on the campuses of six governmental universities: Mansoura, Menoufia, Minia, Sohag, South Valley in Qena, and Aswan.
ITIDA subsidizes each CIH Program through availing space and furniture, and through covering space rent, utilities, Internet cost, security, and cleanliness, in addition to granting annually a maximum amount of EGP 2M to cover specific operating costs. Each CIH Operator must pass this subsidy to target CIH customer groups through non-profit and development services.
