Submitted by Olga Lasco on Tue, 12/06/2011 - 15:31
The Arabia500 winners gathered for the 2011 Prime Minister’s Global Summit on Entrepreneurship in Istanbul, Turkey, December 3-5.
Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan hosted the event. “The Arabia500 companies, led by dynamic men and women, represent the leading edge of a new approach to competitiveness,” said AllWorld co-founder Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter. While the companies of the Arabia500+Turkey are largely unknown, their combined GDP is greater than 80 countries. Collectively, the Arabia500+Turkey represent $15 billion in sales and 100,000 employees, equal to two times the size of Apple Inc. Each entrepreneur on the ranking has created an average of 200 jobs, in industries from web technology to transportation, energy to education, and construction to consumer goods. An average of only 42 years old, nearly all of them plan to found another company in the next two years.
