It’s one of the rare spaces where tech startups and investors get to meet and make deals in the Middle East. Over 1,000 young regional entrepreneurs and early stage investors gathered in Beirut, Lebanon, for the third year of the ArabNet Digital Summit. Attendees credit the conference, founded by Omar Christidis, a Lebanese-born Yale graduate, for helping them connect with people and funding, and for providing inspiration and new ideas. Among the key themes of this year’s event was the pressing need to produce more Arabic content for online consumption.
