FT profiles Egyptian tech angel investor Hanan Abdel Meguid

FT profiles tech angel investor Hanan Abdel Meguid: The tech veteran (and one of the nicest people Enterprise knows) is profiled as part of a lengthy Financial Times (paywall) piece that puts the spotlight on six up-and-coming startups from around the world. Her company, Kemelizer, is currently backing two startups, Iqraaly, which “aims to be the Audible of the Middle East,” and another investment in, which she calls a toolbox for fashion ecommerce. “I first want to explore and find out what is the number of start-ups doing really well versus those which win awards but don’t succeed as businesses,” she says. “The real matrix now is to go from hype to reality.”
