Below is a write up in Gulf Business about Instabeat Founder and other entrepreneurs from the Middle East:

“Former professional swimmer Hobeika saw a gap in the market for a swimming-tracking device and has carried her idea across the world. Since achieving third place in Qatar’s Stars of Science Competition and winning first prize at the MIT Enterprise Forum Pan Arab Business Plan Competition she has raised funding through both traditional and crowd funding platforms. Even achieving more than twice her initial goal of $35,000 on Indiegogo during the first days of a campaign in 2013. The engineer is now preparing for the Instabeat product launch in San Francisco, where she is working with a manufacturing partner.”
