Anghami, the audio streaming platform, has launched a new original podcast titled “Shagaf,” featuring Arab women entrepreneurs from the fields of business and technology.
The show is hosted by female entrepreneur Emon Shakoor, who is the founder and CEO of Blossom Accelerator, Saudi Arabia’s first female-focused accelerator. According to Shakoor, the podcast is described as an entrepreneur running with a focus on women, empowering female founders.
Shakoor added that working with Anghami on the podcast is a great way to get their literal voices heard and share the realities of starting a business. The goal is to share real stories with real women.
It has to be noted that in Saudi Arabia, 67% of podcast listeners tuned in at least once a week, 30% of them listened to podcasts on a daily basis, while 22% did so three times a week.
Zeina Tabbara, Podcast Lead at Anghami, commented on the new podcast saying: “Podcast consumption is growing fast in MENA. We’re developing podcasts in key categories such as lifestyle, sports, and tech (and are) truly excited to work with Emon who is passionate about the startup landscape in Saudi and MENA”.
To recall, “Shagaf” is part of a bigger series of podcasts that Anghami aims to produce and stream. The show is now available to stream on Anghami with new episodes dropping every Sunday.
