On its June issue, Entrepreneur Middle East Magazine, dedicated its cover to Yemen. The magazine covered Yemeni Entrepreneurial Ecosystem with a special report. The report highlighted ROWAD Foundation and its efforts to catalyzing the ecosystem ” Catalyzing Yemen’s Startup Ecosystem“.
The magazine also highlighted stories of a number of Yemeni aspiring entrepreneurs with the title: “Moving Mountains; Yemeni Startups work under circumstance that you can’t begin to imagine”. Some of these stories are of winners of Afkar Award and BlockOne competition.
This could be by far the most extensive coverage the Entrepreneurship Ecosystem in Yemen has got by regional media. You can download the full issue in PDF format here:
It is great to see positive stories on Yemen at a time when Yemen coverage on international media is dominated by war, conflict, and terrorism stories.
This coverage comes as a result of ROWAD effort to reach out to regional and international media to provide more attention to Yemen and its Entrepreneurs. Prior to this story, Wamda.Com has also wrote a few stories on Yemen.
Thank you for your continues support to Yemen’s Entrepreneurship Ecosystem, and to ROWAD. We are determined to keep working with you to create more opportunities to Yemeni Entrepreneurs.
