“As one of our attendees said, “It can’t get any better.” The 3rd StartupQ8 event went well thanks to our speakers Abdulaziz Al-Loughani, Hoi Wan and Dr. Naif AlMutawa and the more than 70 people who showed up; it was amazing to meet so many young talents and passionate entrepreneurs in Kuwait.

As usual, the event was split into three sessions with three speakers:

1. Early Stage Funding with Abdulaziz AlLoughani

Abdulaziz took stage and started explaining the cycle of funding that startups go through. We further discussed his experience with his previous startup (, one of the most successful startup in Kuwait). The discussion that followed his talk was also interesting and was focused on the lack of smart money in Kuwait.

  1. Thank you for making the sincere attempt to divulge this. I feel pretty strong about it and would like to read more. If its allright, as you gain more in depth knowledge, would you mind adding more posts similar to this one with more information? It would be very helpful and useful for me and my co-workers.

  2. Mobile blogging is an exciting phenomenon that iscrossing the blogosphere. One of the understandings why a lot of bloggers are pulled to the medium of blogging in first place is that they enjoy being able to makefrequent updates and posts that keep all of their visitors up to rush with currentsituations. Mobile blogs, ormoblogs, take this to the extreme by providing users to post matters literally as they happen. This new wave of moblogs and mobloggers keep net surfers up to date with good and bad eventsissues of importance as they occur all over the world, helping to make internationalcommunication quicker and more correct. Many individuals feel that the limitations of blogging have a lot to do with geography. After all, there is only socurrent that a blog can be when you need to run home and boot up in order to update it. However, mobile blogging marks the starting of a exciting new era when web-based communication can happen spontaneously from any location. Moblogging devices mean that there is almost nowhere on the planet thatstays off-limits for bloggers. Next part next week
