I’m starting this blog for three key reasons:
- Share insights and experiences “from the field” to serve as a resource for the community of tech entrepreneurs.
- Stimulate an open conversation about what’s working and what’s not in building our entrepreneurial ecosystem.
- To the extent possible, document the story of the Palestinian tech sector from today’s nascency to tomorrow’s maturity.
These are not set in stone. Simply, they are what I view as most relevant given what I do today, and where I think I can add value. In addition to the above, I will occasionally write about other life matters, primarily as a form of personal therapy.
I’ve been thinking on-and-off about starting a personal blog for over two years now. I’ve always known that there’s a lot I want to write about, but always worried about having enough time to dedicate to doing so. I now finally have decided to do this knowing full well that it’s never really about whether you have enough time. It’s simply about whether you really want to do it.
I welcome all comments and feedback both about content and form, and will do my best to respond to all.
