For far too long Afghanistan has been associated in the western mind with terrorism, extreme poverty and the mecca of heroin production. But there is an undercurrent buzzing of thirsty young entrepreneurs attempting to connect on an international network level of knowledge sharing, resources and partnerships.
With unprecedented levels of access to broadband/fiber optic Internet, mobile technology and social media happening, the sky is the limit for growth. Not just in the western sense of bags of money on the payoff day when the startup company becomes unstoppable, but in the growth of bringing young people out of poverty into the modern business digital world where areas such as health and education can have an impact and change Afghanistan’s' future and economy. The flipside and the current situation, is one of the young fleeing the country because of soaring unemployment and the vulnerability to insurgent groups such as the Taliban.
Afghanistan only opened its very first coworking space early in 2016 and it sits behind barbed wire and concrete walls with gun-toting security guards and a bunker, just in case. There is a very small but a growing group of startup communities happening with plenty of interest from the young educated Afghan to become a part of the worldwide picture.
In a country where only 34% can read, the prospect of a $2 billion investment in high-speed optical fiber and groups such as Founder Institute, Startup Grind and the government backed "Ibtikar", the future looks as rosy as it can from a bastion of hope in a country where it is easier to fire a gun than to tap on a laptop.
