ITP.net Technology Leaders of 2017: Entrepreneurs
Take a peek into who has made our Technology Leaders 2017 guide
Welcome to ITP.net's Technology Leaders 2017 guide, where we bring together important and influential individuals working in IT within the Middle East.
The tech entrepreneurial community in the region has ventured into new territory in 2017 with multiple acquisitions and heavy investments, and thanks to two mega-rounds raised by Careem and SOUQ.com, the tech start-up investments hit a record $900m with the UAE this year.
The UAE has retained the top position as the region's tech startup hub for the fourth consecutive year, being home to one-third of all Middle East and North Africa investors and 19 venture capitalists, the highest in the region.
We aim to recognise and celebrate the diversity within the entrepreneurial sector and have put together a micro-site of individuals that have stood out this year.
The guide is not ranked in any specific order, instead the profiles are listed alphabetically and offers insight into each individual, their role and contribution to the Middle East.
