The World Economic Forum, in partnership with the International Finance Corporation, have selected the top 100 Arab world startups that are transforming the MENA region and reshaping the future in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).

“You can see the impact and ingenuity of Arab start-ups everywhere in the Arab world. We see impressive momentum and – with sovereign wealth funds and traditional family businesses – the emergence of a whole new type of venture capitalist. For me, this is the biggest underreported story in the region.” – Mirek Dusek, Head of Middle East and North Africa of the World Economic Forum
