Amman, the capital city of Jordan is predicted to be the silicon valley of the region.

It has arisen to become number one place in the MENA region since 2001 in number of tech deals funded and second in amount of funds invested.

Between 2001 and 2012, 900+ tech companies and startups have been founded in the country creating 84,000 new jobs (6% of total Jordanian labour force). It’s also the center of Arabic content creation.

With ongoing support from local and international investors, Amman is now successfully establishing itself a regional tech-hub, attracting tech people and startups from across the region.
