Startup Confessionals

Entrepreneurship

Today, the stories behind the creation of startups in emerging markets are often left out of the global narrative. In “Startup Confessionals”, we’ll dive into founder stories from the Middle East and North Africa, with a focus on the Arab world, to learn about some of their biggest lessons and challenges on the road to product market fit, and hopefully leave you more reflective, and inspired. Our mission is to illuminate founders in the region and uncover the honest and often unspoken truths about startup life, from the personal to the professional.

We’ll dive into topics like:

- How founders continue to stay motivated and productive when there are challenges
- The topics of productivity and resilience
- How they raised capital and more

I’m your host, Yasmeen Turayhi, and as a product marketing expert in Silicon Valley and Board member of TechWadi, the leading non-profit organization building bridges between Silicon Valley and the Middle East and North Africa region, I’ll lead these interviews with startup founders and entrepreneurs where we will learn about what it takes to start a company from the personal to the professional.
