Louis Lebbos on why we haven’t yet seen a superagency in the region & supporting local entrepreneurs
From our LIVE FB conversation with Louis Lebbos, Founding Partner at UAE-based Astrolabs. Louis chats with Hashem about why his co-founder Muhammed Mekki and him left their previous startup Namshi to start Astrolabs and the risks of raising money from the wrong VCs. He also shares his thoughts on digital marketing in the region & why we have yet to see a true “super-agency” of ex-global agencies creatives with local insights and a true appetite to make their own mark. They talk about why everything worthwhile takes a really long time and how Hashem was inspired by Maria Popova’s blog [brainpickings.org](https://brainpickings.org).
