In the 3rd segment of the final panel at the Mix n' Mentor event in Dubai this November, Muhammed Mekki of Namshi discuss his partnership with Aramex, and how Namshi has continued to learn what works in the Saudi Arabian e-commerce market.
Fadi Ghandour, CEO of Aramex, discusses how the logistics company also iterates its offerings based upon what it learns from major e-commerce players, and inadvertently announces a new potential warehouse tailored for small and medium businesses in Dubai. "We're in the business of actually making the ecosystem work," he says.
Finally, as Mekki and panelists Joi Ito of the MIT Media Lab and Brian Sigafoos of Duplays look on, Habib asks Fadi to explain who else from the private sector is also as proud of supporting startups?
It's a prescient question now that Fadi has launched a Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility movement on Wamda; here, Fadi explains how startups are the biggest job creators, and why the private sector needs to step up and fulfill its role in supporting startups the right way.
