Book Party – StartUp Rising

Startup Rising:  

The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East is the first to explore a remarkable rise of tech-enabled problem solving and innovation in startups around the region.  US-based internet executive and venture investor Christopher Schroeder travelled from Egypt to Dubai interviewing hundreds of a new generation of entrepreneurs and their backers, and has seen a hopeful story of the region the west rarely considers.  It is, in fact, a lens to what societies around emerging growth markets with access to mobile devices, broad band and smart phones are creating, with ramifications across their societies.  Christopher will speak at lunch, and donate all his proceeds to Ruwwad — youth and community centers in developing communities around the Arab world.
