Startup Arabia captures the untold stories of high-tech entrepreneurs in the Middle East who are creating one of the most vibrant and fertile tech hubs in the world today. The book is written by Amir Hegazi, a life-long entrepreneur, with over 15 years of startup, tech, e-commerce, and digital media experience.
Through a collection of interviews, Startup Arabia touches on the early days of those entrepreneurs and the startups they created. It explores how they got their initial ideas, what challenges they faced and how they overcame them, what lessons they learned from those experiences, and what advice they have for the next generation of Middle East entrepreneurs. They also share what they believe is required to ensure the continued development of a startup ecosystem in the region.
Not only did these entrepreneurs conquer the usual challenges of new tech startups; they managed to break from deep-seated tradition and societal limiting beliefs, cut through red tape and navigate an often unfriendly startup environment.
Startup Arabia provides an eye-opening, refreshing look at the entrepreneurial journey and a much-needed call to action to aspiring entrepreneurs across the region to help shape the future of the Arab world.
