Founders  of Egyptian Streets Mohamed Khairat and Mostafa Amin have been named in the very first class of Forbes’ Arab 30 Under 30.

The achievement comes less than two months after Khairat and Amin were named in Forbes’ annual 30 Under 30 Europe list in the ‘Media and Marketing’ category.

“With over 60% of the population under the age of 30, the very first class of Arab 30 under 30 is a dynamic mix of social entrepreneurs, artists, celebrities and intellectuals,” reads Forbes Middle East’s website.

“Many in the list are scattered across the globe as they strive to prove their mettle in countries far from home. With such diverse areas of expertise, these innovators are transforming the rules of business. In order to be featured in this list of 30, the individual needed to be of Arab origin and should have been born in the year 1988 or later.”

Khairat and Amin were selected alongside footballer Mohamed Salah, cinematographer Khaled Khatib, Minister of Youth Shamma bint Suhail Faris Al Mazrui, and other young and influential figures across the Middle East.

“We’re very excited to be selected in Forbes’ very first Arab 30 Under 30. Our success is very much thanks to all the contributors who have helped build Egyptian Streets from just a blog to a leading voice in Egypt,” said Khairat.

Amin said that he was proud of the achievement and hoped Egyptian Streets continues to inspire minds across Egypt and the world.

“We’re here today because of our focus on stories that matter. Thank you to everyone for their support – it will never be forgotten,” said Amin.

Egyptian Streets was first founded as a blog by Khairat, then a 20-year-old politics, media and communications university student, in July 2012. It was later founded as a media organisation in March 2014 by Khairat, Amin, and Assem Emam.

Egyptian Streets was founded with the intention of establishing an engaging social platform for readers to discover and discuss the various issues and stories that impact Egypt. Today, Egyptian Streets has more than 260,000 followers on Facebook, all of which are organically reached, and its website is visited by more than 500,000 per month.
