A different story from the Middle East

I wrote about our first meeting with Chris Schroeder, author of Startup Rising, in May 2015. Startup Rising covers the rise of technology and entrepreneurship in the Middle East.

Fast forward two years, and the startup ecosystem in the Middle East has developed significantly. Companies like Souq, Namshi, and Careem have each proved that large tech businesses can be built in the region.

What hasn’t changed is Chris’ dedication to the region. In this insightful article in the MIT Technology Review entitled “A Different Story from the Middle East: Entrepreneurs Building an Arab Tech Economy”, Chris shares some of the most recent positive developments and entrepreneurial success stories emerging from the region.

Chris’ active coverage and global promotion of tech entrepreneurship in the Middle East continues to be very valuable for the region.
