| Jun 20, 2008 | comment 2 Comments

In the latest poll on StartUpArabia, the question to the readers was:
Is trust an issue for you when it comes to Arab startups?

The result of reader voting came out as follows:

Poll results - Trust

Out of 59 readers who responded to the poll:
- 41% of them think there is definitely an issue of trust when it comes to Arab startups
- 32% say it is sometimes an issue for them
- 8% responded that it wasn’t an issue at all
- and the remaining 19% thought the question was irrelevant

Even though the reasons every person may have vary, and even though not everyone might agree with all the points mentioned in Qwaider’s guest post here detailing why he doesn’t trust Arab online services, it’s obviously an issue that Arab startups have to tackle seriously.

    In fact, prepend any topic with “Arab”, eg

    Is trust an issue when it comes to Arab food?
    Is trust an issue when it comes to Arab politics?
    Is trust an issue when it comes to Arab economy?
    Is trust an issue when it comes to Arab press?
    Is trust an issue when it comes to Arab {Whatever}?

    Pretty sure y’ll get the same results ;)
