The Middle East has a new story to tell and this is, From MENA to the World.
Over the past decade, the Middle East has been silently building an ecosystem while the world wasn't watching. We've had conflict, war and despair, and yet our people have hope and ambition for change and transformation. Step by step, driven by the spirit of entrepreneurship and an underdog mentality, we have collectively come together to create a vibrant startup industry with a new narrative that harnesses our strengths and is the driver of our future.
For the longest time, the Middle East has been misunderstood. The mission of this show is to share those stories from those that are contributing to this change; the investors, founders, and operators. These conversations showcase entrepreneurial journeys from a deeper perspective, while sharing insights on the regional challenges and opportunities that exist in the region but are often overlooked.
Join our host Amir Farha, founder of COTU Ventures, as he explores the human side to entrepreneurship in the Middle East from the narratives of people who have the courage to drive change, overcome barriers, and build lasting companies despite all the difficulties along the way.
Releasing in August 2023.
