On Tuesday, October 29, 2013, CNAS hosted a book event for Startup Rising: The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East by Christopher Schroeder, member of the CNAS Board of Advisors. As a seasoned angel investor in emerging markets, Mr. 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 saw thousands of talented, successful, and intrepid entrepreneurs, all willing to face cultural, legal, and societal impediments inherent to their worlds. In Startup Rising: The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East, Mr. Schroeder marries his own observations with the predictions of these tech giants to offer a surprising and timely look at the second stealth revolution in the Middle East-one that promises to reinvent it as a center of innovation and progress.
Speakers at the event included: Christopher Schroeder, Author of Startup Rising: The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East Member, Board of Advisors, Center for a New American Security and former Chief Executive Officer of HealthCentral.com and Washingtonpost.com, Newsweek Interactive; and Nathaniel Fick, Chief Executive Officer, Endgame, Inc., Member, Board of Directors and former CEO, Center for a New American Security.
