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.

In this segment, Chris Schroeder explains how government policy and the bottom-up capabilities of the Middle East are leading the way into the future, and the delicate part the Internet plays in that future.
