I am a journalist, investor, and startup advisor working in the Middle East. As the former Editor-in-Chief of Wamda, I led the largest entrepreneurship news site in the Middle East, covering business and technology trends in 14 markets, and launched Wamda for Women, an initiative to support female founders. I am also a founding member of WAIN, the first women’s angel investment network in Dubai. I have written for Al Jazeera, The Washington Post, and The Economist, and spoken at the World Policy Institute and several regional technology events about entrepreneurship and technology trends in the Middle East. I hold a BA with honors from Stanford University and an MA in Cognitive Neuroscience from NYU.
