The Learning Curve Podcast - THE Podcast for Women
Entrepreneurs in the Middle East.
Three words I would use to describe Rola and those are Driven, passionate and curious. She's one lady that loves a challenge and this is totally reflected in her achievements. She is the Co-founder of MICEit.co - an online solution for event bookings & Management. She's the Founder of Friendture, a one-stop location platform for group activity creation, invitation and management. She's a founding member of Girls in Tech Jordan AND she's an Hadafi Ambassador, a Women Entrepreneurship Programme.
Her background isnt technology. She comes from a Commercial Management background in the travel industry but didn't want to be an employee her entire life. She wanted to build something and make a difference. Her inspiration for everything she does is Steve Jobs! He is her hero and her go to person when ever she's feeling low and demotivated. She's learnt not to procrastinate and just get things done and done today! When she needs help, she simply asks. She learnt that if she cant' fix something or she has a weakness in an area, she fills it by asking someone to teach her or share their knowledge.
Rola is making waves in Jordan, she's learning, moving forward and striving to see more women in Jordan become part of the technology industry. In this episode we go behind the scenes of what she does and how she does it.
This is her learning curve story.
