Google bus to travel across Egypt in search of new tech ideas

A Google-branded bus will travel across Egypt seeking the next generation of technology entrepreneurs.”We will put someone’s dream through a seven-month crash course that will help turn it into a commercially viable business,” said Google’s manager in Egypt Wael Fakharany. “We have been working on this concept for nine months. We had signed a contract with the Egyptian government in 2009 to invest in the country’s Internet ecosystem and this is part of that commitment.” Individuals are invited to submit concepts in areas like cloud computing, digital advertising, e-commerce, mobile applications, and location-based applications.
