Is Jordan the Middle East’s Silicon Valley?

Recording: Is Jordan the Middle East’s Silicon Valley?, Mar 15, 2023

Three young, dynamic Jordanian leaders and innovators will each share their part of the story of how the country’s creative and entrepreneurial ecosystem is crafting a new, exciting narrative in the heart of the Middle East: one that embraces culture and heritage while defying expectations. Topics covered will include:
How the Jordanian diaspora is elevating Jordan’s global profile and proudly representing their home country overseas
How Jordanian talent, ingenuity, and creativity are putting this small Kingdom on the map in the world of gaming (and beyond)
How Jordan’s entrepreneurial and investment ecosystem is working to build a local tech industry that is driving innovation and grabbing the attention of global tech giants
