Hakawati announces launch of new podcast series- startup confessionals

Podcast will focus on Middle East and North African founders' journeys


Dubai – Hakawati, the podcast network creating and delivering an ever-expanding range of Arabic spoken word audio content, announces the launch of its new series – Startup Confessionals – hosted by Yasmeen Turayhi.

Startup Confessionals will host a series of interviews with entrepreneurs from across the MENA region,  revealing the world of founders: their wins, disappointments, personal lives, and how they deal with adversity.

These interviews will address challenges entrepreneurs face within the MENA region – where founders have often had to deliver on the promise of their product within an early, or non-existent, entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The podcast will interview guests from all sectors, including: FinTech, Digital Health, Food Tech, Logistics and Retail.

The show is hosted by Yasmeen Turayhi, a marketing expert based in Silicon Valley and GTM Operator who has launched over 200 products. Yasmeen is a Board member of TechWadi – the non-profit organization connecting Silicon Valley and the Arab world – and an author of “Product Marketing Debunked” on Amazon.

Yasmeen will be speaking to: Dana Baki from Munch:On, Emilian Popa from Ilara Health, Talal Tabaa from CoinMENA, Tarek Mounir from Enhance Fitness; and Islam Shawky from Paymob amongst others.

Yasmin Turayhi, Host of Startup Confessionals, said:

“I am excited to announce the launch of Startup Confessionals. Creating a podcast takes a lot of collaboration between so many people and a lot of hard work, but we created this podcast because there are not enough platforms showcasing talented founder stories from the MENA region.”

Listeners can subscribe and listen to Startup Confessionals on iTunes or follow and listen on Spotify. New episodes will be posted on a weekly basis throughout the summer.
