In the last 3 years, there has been a unprecedented rise in the availability and adoption of technology in the Middle East and Africa. This sudden access to information, the ability to voice opinions and communicate to a global audience has had a almost unimaginable impact.
From the public overthrowing of governments in Egypt and Tunisia to important world-first innovations such as M-Pesa in Kenya, a mobile payment system that allows users to deposit, withdraw & transfer money with a mobile device, the people within these regions truly value the difference that technology has had on their lives.
The Opportunity
A population of 1.3 billion presents a market larger than India, China, Europe & North America. Also consider a average age in many countries of 21 or younger, widespread use / understanding of English and we have the foundations of a region about to flourish.
In this session, I will share my insights and experience to help you succeed in this exciting market.
