More Details🧐 The consortium submitted an application to the FRA to obtain the license for a Venture Capital firm, along with a request to establish the first “SPAC” company in the Egyptian market.
Zeidan added that the SPAC’s initial capital will be EGP 10 million, which is the minimum required capital to set up a SPAC.
Why is this Important🤔 It’s been over two months since the FRA approved the establishment of SPACs. While it is new territory for both the FRA & those considering establishing a SPAC, the first SPAC-to-be is sure to pave the way for more to come.
