It has been a decade since Yahoo! acquired Maktoob for $164 million, marking one of the most significant startup exits in the Middle East and igniting a tech entrepreneurship spark across the region. A decade on, what has changed in the ecosystem and will we be able to produce more than just one unicorn?
Wamda, in partnership with Area 2071, will be hosting a panel to discuss the development of the tech entrepreneurship ecosystem since then, the ongoing struggles, and where the next exits are likely to originate.
Date: Wednesday, November 6, 4:00 - 6:00 pm, at The Auditorium, M floor, Emirates Towers, Dubai.
The discussion will be hosted and moderated by Wamda Executive Chairman, Fadi Ghandour, and will feature:
- Rabea Ataya, Co-founder and CEO at Bayt.com
- Ronaldo Mouchawar, Co-founder of Souq.com, VP of Amazon MENA
- Magnus Olsson, Co-founder and Managing Director at Careem
