Hundreds of Brain Dates in Egypt
In early March, E-180 was at the 2015 Egypt Economic Development Conference where we transformed this international conference, in partnership with Richard Attias & Associates, into a peer-learning hub. The EEDC Marketplace platform revealed itself as an important tool for this peer-learning community comprised of leaders and activists devoted to creating and supporting a new future for Egypt.
Hundreds of Brain Dates were booked and we were on site to help creating these meaningful connections that were fostered among the three thousand attendants.
Here is what some of the participants had to say about their Brain Dating experience!

« The Marketplace app is brilliant! That’s life isn’t it? You meet people and you connect. Sometimes you get it right and sometimes you don’t. But this time all I can say is it’s just brilliant.«
