An Interview With Chris Schroeder, Author of "Startup Rising"

Join the Fool for a conversation with Chris Schroeder, entrepreneur and author of the new book, Startup Rising: The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East. Schroeder's breadth of experience runs the gamut of consumer-oriented and interactive enterprises in news and media, education, social networks, marketing and health, to global entrepreneurship, especially among emerging growth markets.

We chat with Schroeder about the Middle East, and how, despite some Middle Eastern countries' repressive cultures, and the violence plaguing many countries in the region, the area is actually a hotbed of entrepreneurship. Schroeder explains why that is, what countries are making bets in the area, and how entrepreneurship can help change the region going forward.
