In Dubai with Swedish Institute

The Swedish Institute (SI) is a public agency that promotes interest and confidence in Sweden around the world. SI seeks to establish cooperation and lasting relations with other countries through strategic communication and exchange in the fields of culture, education, science and business.

I'd say that lasting relations were built last week in Dubai when fifteen swedish social entrereneurs rejoined their protegees from different arabic countries. I got an irretrievable gift in the form of an invitation to join this group to coach them further in the power of social media. Thank you Javeria Rizvi Kabani for that. I feel like I owe you one.

She Entrepreneurs is a program for dialogue, mutual understanding and knowledge sharing between young women social entrepreneurs from the Middle East, North Africa and Sweden. The program, She Entrepreneurs, includes participants from Egypt, Jordan, Syria, West Bank/Gaza and Iran. Its aim is to inspire, provide tools to work for sustainable change, and to develop a network of women social entrepreneurs in the region. She Entrepreneurs is a pilot program that was introduced in Stockholm in February this year.

I will make three following posts from this journey. The first will be about Dubai - the most screwy place on earth. The second will be about the meeting with these amazing women - so alike but in such different contexts, and finally I must probably put down some thoughts on some new discoveries about the power of social media.
