For the better part of a decade, Hanan Abdel Maguid has been an ardent supporter of entrepreneurship and innovation. Motivated by her own experiences as an entrepreneur, she founded angel startup studio, Kamelizer, in 2014, to provide services and guidance to seed-stage startups, and sits on the board of The Cairo Angels, placing her in a unique position as an impactful stakeholder in an increasingly diverse ecosystem.

Her latest project, Consoleya, feeds further into these goals, providing a unique, modern and fully-equipped co-working space in the heart of Downtown Cairo, that occupies a stunning building which once acted as the French Consulate. Abdel Maguid will be the first to point out that this was by no means a solo effort and the very concept of Consoleya was conceived and executed in collaboration with Karim Shafei, CEO and Chairman of Al Ismaelia for Real Estate Development, a company which continues to lead the charge in reviving Downtown to its former glory.
