Inc. Arabia, the regional edition of Inc. magazine, has launched. Focussing on growing companies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, the magazine aims to offer news, advice and inspiration to those involved in the new economy, such as CEOs and venture capitalists as well as student entrepreneurs and startup employees. Inc. Arabia‘s editorial content will fit into six sections; LAUNCH, BUILD, LEAD, INNOVATE, TECH and MONEY, with each covering different stages of business growth.
The first edition of the monthly magazine is currently on news stands at a price of AED 15 and its first phase of circulation, approximately 15,000 copies, is being distributed across the UAE as well as in Kuwait and Qatar. The publication will eventually also be distributed in the Levant as well as Egypt, before finally expanding into Saudi Arabia and the rest of the GCC region.
“The Middle East and North Africa is on the cusp of an entrepreneurial breakout and, as such, we feel that our timing to come to this market has been on the money,” says Ankush Chibber, Managing Editor, Inc. Arabia. “Having said that, we will be honest and humble in our approach, with an aim to be a crucial part of this growing ecosystem. We don’t want to be just a magazine, but a platform where all the stakeholders in the ecosystem come together and are able to exchange and validate ideas, insights, strategies and achievements using our print, digital and event channels.”
