Souktel to Join US Vice President Biden as Speaker at Global Entrepreneurship Summit

Next month, Turkey will play host to the second annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit—an event which brings together corporate and civic leaders from around the globe. The summit will also serve as a launch ceremony for the Arabia 500—a new index of the Arab World’s top fast-growing companies, developed by Harvard Business School’s Michael E. Porter and regional colleagues.

Souktel is honored to be named as a finalist in the Arabia 500, and to be featured as a panel speaker at the Summit alongside distinguished presenters like US Vice-President Joseph Biden and staff of the Harvard Business Review, equity group Abraaj Capital and the Kauffman Foundation for entrepreneurship.

“This summit is a tremendous opportunity for us to learn from key business leaders in the region,” explains Outreach Team Leader Kristen Roggemann, who will represent Souktel at the event. “As a social enterprise that links job-seekers with work, we’re looking forward to deepening our relationships with Arabia 500 employers across the Arab World’s markets”.
