Confidence is the key to success. But how can you rise above self-doubt and believe in yourself? Elissa Freiha, an angel investor and entrepreneur, found her voice and took on the world. We met Elissa up close and personal during the interview in cooperation with our partner She's Mercedes during the "Designing the future event" in Dubai.
The moment Elissa's confidence grew, her career took off. This self-belief drove her to co-found Womena: a Dubai-based angel investment platform that empowers and educates women to invest in tech start-ups and companies in the Middle East and North Africa.
But getting there meant working through many struggles and doubts. Now, Elissa powers through every day, finding the energy and excitement she needs to get the best from her business. So, what drives Elissa to invest in technology? And how is she inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs?
The price and value of investments and income derived from them can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount originally invested.
