Join Startup Weekend at “Arab Tech Emerging: Connecting the Next Generation of Innovators” Panelists include Startup Weekend COO Adam Stelle.

In 18 months, Startup Weekend has grown by leaps and bounds in the MENA region. In 2010 there was only one event in the Arab world; in 2011, Startup Weekend organized 13.  This high-growth isn’t showing sign of slowing either – we estimate that we’ll hold over 25 events in the MENA region in 2012.

The rising popularity of Startup Weekend in the Arab World is neither surprising nor isolated.  Following the 2011 “Arab Spring”, young people, many of whom are tech-savvy and entrepreneurially-minded, are eagerly embracing self-empowerment through self-employment.

Join us for “Arab Tech Emerging: Connecting the Next Generation of Innovators” with panelists from Google, Mercy Corps, and Startup Weekend to learn about the potential of the next generation of young Arabs.
