Two and a half years ago, she decided to give entrepreneurs a chance to share experiences and connect on a larger level. And voila, Salzburg’s first coworking space was created.</p><br>
<p>What brings her to Egypt? The “Egyptian spirit and spontaneity” of course, as she likes to put it. Her plan is to create not only a coworking space in Egypt, but a whole 4-week-camp, in which entrepreneurs from all over the globe can work, connect, develop, flourish, open up to other markets and have fun all along. </p><br>
<p> “Winter can be a very depressing and uninspiring time in Europe, so we decided to go somewhere closer to the sun and sea. The options available were Tunisia, Malta and Egypt – and when I went to Egypt, I knew that this was it,” Sigl explained. </p><br>
<p>What makes Egypt the better choice, besides the glorious weather? “The drive in Egypt is much faster than in any other country I visited. Additionally, there is a much wider horizon and people are willing to help and join in without prioritizing their personal benefits – something one can only dream of in Europe, for instance.” </p><br>

But as soon as these are lifted, Sigl is planning to start with the reservations to get the Coworking Camp rolling by November. </p><br>
<p> “If one is crazy thinking about a Camp in Egypt these days is a matter of perspective. I'm looking forward meeting fantastic open-minded people over there,” Sigl wrote last week, as she was impressed by the connections she had made on a short trip to Egypt recently and was tormented by second thoughts about the location she felt so strongly about. </p><br>
<p>So far, Sigl is looking for sponsors and partners to help with the financial liability of the project, and she already received over 140 applications from startups worldwide. </p><br>
