Very interesting meeting yesterday in Rome organized by @donatelladr with the stars of the web2.0 scenario in the Middle East:

– Laith M. Zraikat co-founder and chief product officer of Jeeran.com, the largest Arab online community with 1,5 millions registered users and more than 7 millions of unique visitors per month.

– Nadine Toukan co-founder and tribe-leader of UrdunMubdi3 (Creative Jordan), a social network of people who desire to make Jordan a creative economy, lifestyle and mindstyle.

Unfortunately Habib Haddad co-founder of Yamli.com, who was also expected, could not participate due to visa problems.

We always think that in that part of the world is difficult if not impossible to find innovation while these people clearly demonstrated the contrary.
