Women Entrepreneurs Are Rockin’ the Startup Stage in the Middle East

Christopher Schroeder at PandoDaily will be sharing his stories over the next two weeks (don’t miss them) on the changing Middle East and it involves rockin’ women entrepreneurs.

They are running platforms for Arabic translation out of Beirut, and eCommerce enterprises in Amman. Retailers who have achieved local success in traditional “bricks and mortar” boutiques have opened sites to reach audiences across the region, even the globe. Former athletes use technology to create products that enhance training routines, and mothers have created social platforms to access best-in-class education and advice. Veterans of Tahrir Square leverage their unique social network experiences to build crowd-sourced video story telling.

Read his entire empowering piece here.
