Startup Mentoring in UAE

Wafa Omar, founder of BizWhisper, a startup which is specialized in creative problem solving for entrepreneurs in the MENA region through mentoring, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim.

In this conversation, we talk about startup mentoring in the UAE, in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the political and economic alliance of six Middle Eastern countries—Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman, and ostensibly in the MENA region as a whole. We discuss being a female entrepreneur in the Middle East and what the future holds.

My takeaway is that the future of mentoring startups in the UAE, GCV, and MENA region is crucial for growing a healthy, thriving startup ecosystem. Having a home grown mentoring platform that caters to culturally specific mentoring needs is terrific.
