The Arab Spring signaled a political upheaval of the Arab world. But a lesser impact, although heavily documented still, was in the region’s technology sector. Penned the “social media revolution”, the Arab spring has fostered a massive entrepreneurial change in the landscape of the Arab world.
Stanford University, always at the forefront of entrepreneurial change, is launching a program under the guidance of Dr. Amr Adly named “Entrepreneurship after the Arab Spring” to investigate the entrepreneurial ecosystem comprising of legal and policy frameworks that govern the private sector in Tunisia and Egypt.
“The research project aims at raising awareness about the ecosystem among those designing international assistance programs as well as informing local stakeholders in Tunisia and Egypt.”
