Earlier this month, members of the TechWadi board and executive team, Sharif El-Badawi, Nora Abusitta Ouri, Rama Chakaki, and Nida Atshan, met with eight Middle East/North African Consul Generals at the UAE Consulate in Los Angeles. The consulates represented at the meeting included our host, the Consul General of the United Arab Emirates, and the Consul Generals and/or Deputy Consul Generals from: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, and Morocco. The meeting introduced these distinguished officials to TechWadi’s mission and how the tech/entrepreneurship ecosystem is vital to economic growth and success for each respective country. The event generated important relationships for future, direct collaborations between Silicon Valley and the MENA region.
