Mohamed Abuagla, business founder, knows a lot about Saudi Arabian culture and is fluent in the Arabic language. In the eighties, his father was transferred to this Middle East country to teach at a local university. This experience changed Mohamed forever. In fact, once he became a business owner, it was only natural that he sought opportunities in the far-away land that was so familiar to him.
The Business Challenge
Mohamed considers himself a successful business owner with a lot of ambition. Once he started probing the market in the Middle East, he knew his company had real opportunities in the region; after all, technology was growing exponentially. However, he was faced with the reality that once he opened offices abroad, he would have to be conducting business in worlds separated by almost 7,000 miles.
