Google's driving the GBus in Egypt

Starting this week, a Google-branded bus will begin a trek across Egypt looking for entrepreneurs. The idea is to find young people with big ideas, give them a crash course in turning a good idea into a successful business.

According to the New York Times:

Google's new initiative, Ebda2, which means "Start" in Arabic, is the latest in a string of seed and mentorship programs designed to support the wave of entrepreneurial ventures sweeping across Egypt. The revolutionary spirit that had youth demanding job creation and speaking out about their political concerns through social media has also encouraged them to start online businesses, experts say.
