Laith Zraikat and Omar Koudsi
speak about how they channeled their abilities and ambitions into
starting up online community Jeeran in Jordan. Zraikat explains how
recently, Jeeran pivoted into a new vision, generating very
localized content by providing its community with information about
what's happening in cities throughout the Arab World (causes,
events, restaurants, etc..) and publishing them for people to
comment on and connect around. This helps consumers narrow their
choices and spend their time more efficiently.
Koudsi explains how this is facilitating Jeeran's regional expansion, and describes how the daily challenges of running Jeeran are his favorite part of being an entrepreneur.
