Youth Tech and Entrepreneurship

Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former US National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley will be presenting the talk "Youth, Tech, and Entrepreneurship: Unlocking the Middle East's Economic Potential" at the Atlantic Council, the fifth public hearing of the Middle East Strategy Task Force (MEST). The event will highlight the widespread positive transformations currently occurring in the Arab world. Not in DC? You can catch the live webcast here.

Albright and Hadley will lead a discussion with cutting-edge entrepreneurs and investors from the region to explore how policies that empower youth, entrepreneurs, and technology startups can combine at this unique moment in the region's development to help the Middle East more fully realize its vast economic potential across multiple sectors. 


Panelists will also discuss the importance of investing in the region's human capital as a means of economic revitalization, and the creative ways in which entrepreneurs and educators are doing just that.
