NEXUS Program

Program Paused

Due to the overwhelming number of applications, IPSD is pausing all applications for the Co-Investment grant, the IGNITE program, and Nexus grant program. The World Bank, working with the EU and other donors, has agreed to provide additional financing for an IPSD 2 project. It is estimated that the applications for these programs shall re-open in the last quarter of 2023.




The NEXUS program aims to support tech / tech-enabled startups and innovative SMEs that are ready to expand into regional and international markets through a phased cohort approach with specific target markets in the MENA Region.
