Youths in the Middle East deal with the world’s social problems such as high youth unemployment rates. As a solution, some are creating new businesses with a social purpose, such as tackling environmental issues, illiteracy or health, while also spurring job creation.
According to recent surveys and research conducted in the region, they show that youth are interested in the idea of social enterprise. This could mean that its social enterprise scene could be successfully thriving. In fact, business incubators, investors, nonprofits, and government organizations collaborate to generate a better economic future for the region’s youth.
