  5. Building a delivery startup in Turkey with epic traffic, scant funding, and no broadband

    Istanbul traffic can be unpredictable. As the hub of one of the world's most rapidly growing countries, with a population nearly doubling to 14 million over the last two decades, the city was recently named the most congested in Europe in 2012. What should be a 10-minute cab ride can turn into gridlock with little warning. So you might guess starting an online delivery in Istanbul business might not be such a good idea. But you'd be wrong.

  6. The new Middle East: Women at the center of a startup ecosystem, Pt. 6

    I have been the beneficiary of some remarkable lessons in this series. During a period of great unpredictability in the Middle East, it has been nothing short of awe-inspiring to visit Middle Eastern tech-based startups and meet the many remarkable women playing a central role in running them. The learning has continued in the extensive feedback I have received.

    When leading Middle East platform to empower entrepreneurs wamda.com held its "Celebration of Entrepreneurship eCommerce" gathering in Amman last June, people packed in by the hundreds. The Middle East is an enormous consumer market with money to spend, and signs of a land grab are everywhere.

  8. The New Middle East: Women at the Center of a Startup Ecosystem, Pt. 4

    It's pretty hard to think of a great consumer facing platform that isn’t, by its nature, social. Should it be surprising, then, that coming off of the Arab Spring uprisings, so often coordinated and communicated through Facebook and Twitter, women entrepreneurs in the Middle East look at consumer-facing platforms and social networking from a unique perspective?
