Is it becoming easier to fund a startup in the Middle East? Find out from and guests.
With that in mind, The Wall Street Journal Middle East is conducting a live Google Hangout discussion aiming to answer one simple question: Is it becoming easier to fund a startup in the Middle East?
Five panelists will help us answer this question currently being posed by countless entrepreneurs who are considering starting a business. The panel will chat through how entrepreneurs can seek funding; which sectors are most likely to get that much-needed cash; and the challenges that still remain in building a startup eco-system across the Middle East.
