Summary
"As a seasoned internet entrepreneur and venture investor, Christopher M. Schroeder was curious but skeptical about the future of investing in the Arab world. Traveling to Dubai, Cairo, Amman, Beirut, Istanbul, and even Damascus, he was stunned by the thousands of talented, successful, and intrepid entrepreneurs, often with women leading the way, all tackling the cultural, legal, and societal impediments that had previously stymied innovation. Equally important, he saw major private equity firms, venture capitalists, and tech companies appearing throughout the region, and global players like Google, Intel, Cisco, Yahoo, Paypal, and LinkedIn making significant bets, despite the uncertainty. In Startup Rising, he shares the stories of these entrepreneurs, his own observations of this stealth revolution, and what today's tech giants predict for the future."--
