More About Startup Rising by Christopher M. Schroeder; Marc Andreessen
 
 
 
Overview
Despite the world's elation at the Arab Spring, shockingly little has changed politically in the Middle East; even frontliners Egypt and Tunisia continue to suffer repression, fixed elections, and bombings, while Syria descends into civil war. But in the midst of it all, a quieter revolution has begun to emerge, one that might ultimately do more to change the face of the region: entrepreneurship. As a seasoned angel investor in emerging markets, Christopher 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. Equally important, he saw major private equity firms, venture capitalists, and tech companies like Google, Intel, Cisco, Yahoo, and LivingSocial making significant bets, despite the uncertainty in the region. In "Startup Rising," he 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."
