Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do I need to be an Élanoura Collective Member to join the retreat?
Yes, joining the Élanoura Collective is the first step. It’s free to join and ensures that every retreat is filled with like-minded individuals who share the same values and goals. Once you’re approved, you’ll receive an invitation to sign up for the retreat.
2. Is the retreat exclusively for women founders?
Absolutely! The retreat is open to women founders, solopreneurs, side hustlers, and even those aspiring to become founders. This diversity adds to the richness of our community.
3. Which airport should I fly in and out of?
You should book flights in and out of Cairo International Airport (CAI). We recommend arriving by 11am on the first day to settle in and take part in the welcome activities.
4. What should my departure flight time be on the last day?
On the final day of the retreat, you’re free to depart at your convenience after breakfast. The airport is approximately 10 minutes away from our last hotel, so you can plan your departure accordingly.
5. Are airport transfers included?
