"Building a company is never easy. To do so under political turmoil following the toppling of a dictator—well, that’s a far bigger challenge than your typical Silicon Valley woes, like raising money, finding office space, or hiring engineers." #startup #entrepreneurship

While availability of and access to #healthcare are challenges in developing nations, access to mobile phones is rising rapidly.   As of 2010, the World Bank reports that developing nations experience more mobile use than developed nations. Mobile phone users in developing nations account for 77% of the population [1]. Fast-forward to 2013, the ICT reported that mobile penetration rates in developing countries have reached nearly 90%. More people have access to a #mobile signal than they do to electricity or water [2]. The accessibility of mobile phones and cellular networks in developing countries has led the way to eHealth, specifically mHealth, as a low-cost solution to healthcare issues in these nations. #health   #tech

#ecotourism  I hope Cyprus will be an eco-tourism destination one day, soon. I have prepared a set of proposals for Cyprus Tourism Organization and local municipalities about how, with minimal investments we can save our environment and turn an expense into a business and revenue generator. 
Tourism all over the world is on the upswing. World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) statistics show that the number of international tourists around the world grew nearly 5% during the first six months of 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011. Despite lingering worries over the global economy, international tourism is bouncing back. A record 467 million tourists traveled in the first half of the year, and UNWTO officials hope to reach the mag...
