Alfanar's Executive Director Myrna Atalla was recently hosted on afikra's Tijara podcast to discuss Alfanar's venture philanthropy work in the Middle East.

Afikra is a global organisation that aims to promote intellectualism and the diversity and richness of Arab world’s cultures and histories. Tijara is an interview series focusing on the history of economics, business, and trade and how these three fields helped shape culture and life in the Arab world. The series will host business historians, economists, and businesspeople who have helped shape companies and economies of the region, while giving afikra’s community a deeper understanding of the forces that have helped shape Arab economies. ‎Following the interview, there is a moderated town-hall-style Q&A with questions coming from the live virtual audience ‎on Zoom.‎

Special thanks to Mikey Muhanna for hosting us and for moderating such a fascinating conversation! Watch the podcast below:
