Continuing our series of video interview I did during World Economic Forum (WEF), Dead Sea, Jordan. I present to you today a video interview with Serial Entrepreneur from Syria: Abdulsalam Haykal.
Abdulsalam is the only WEF selected Young Global Leader from Syria, he is the founder of CEO of Transtek Information Systems an ERP vendor based in Syria, and Haykal Media which publishes a number of magazines: Forward Magazine, Aliqtisadi and Happynings. Moreover, He is the president of Syrian Young Entrepreneurs Association (SYEA.)
In this interview we discussed many topics with Abdulsalam including the status of the IT industry in Syria, the impact of US sanctions in the IT sector in Syria ( he said it forced them to be more innovative, and I’ll add that it led to less competition 🙂 ) his views about WEF 09 Dead Sea Summit, SYEA’s recent activities, the challenges he faced when starting Transtek and his other online projects such as: Every Syrian Site a Syrian site directory and Syrian History an online museum of Syria.
