When President Obama visited Cairo and gave his landmark address to the Arab world, he spoke of the need to begin significant engagement with the Muslim-majority countries in the areas of technology and the knowledge economy. Venture capitalist Alaya Bettaieb talks with Patt about how investment, innovation and technology are the building blocks for economic development and strong business ties that can bridge cultures and strengthen bonds between the U.S. and the Arab world.
