The city of Alexandria in ancient Egypt was a center of knowledge and commerce in the Mediterranean. It’s best known for the Great Library of Alexandria, which housed the largest collections of texts available at the time. We can think of it as the internet of its era.

In the harbor of the city was a Great Lighthouse called the Pharos of Alexandria. One of the Seven Wonders of the (Western) Ancient World, it guided those seeking knowledge and opportunity into the city.

By bringing together people, knowledge, and opportunity we hope to be a beacon of innovation in our community.
