I participated in a panel entitled “How Turkey can become an integral part of the MENA region” at the Step conference in Dubai a few months ago. The panel was hosted by Khaled Talhouni from Wamda Capital, and the other panelists were Kerim Ture from Modanisa, Hande Cilingir from Insider, and Numan Numan from 212.
In the half hour session, we cover a wide range of topics including:
- How MENA funds can invest in Turkish startups and vice versa
- The challenges faced by Turkish startups when expanding to MENA
- The similarities and differences between the MENA and Turkey startup ecosystems
