|Long Description||Despite the world's elation at the Arab Spring, shockingly little has changed politically in the Middle East; even frontliners Egypt and Tunisia continue to suffer repression, fixed elections, and bombings, while Syria descends into civil war. But in the midst of it all, a quieter revolution has begun to emerge, one that might ultimately do more to change the face of the region: entrepreneurship. As a seasoned angel investor in emerging markets, Christopher M. Schroeder was curious but skeptical about the future of investing in the Arab world. Travelling to Dubai, Cairo, Amman, Beirut, Istanbul, and even Damascus, he saw thousands of talented, successful, and intrepid entrepreneurs, all willing to face cultural, legal, and societal impediments inherent to their worlds. Equally important, he saw major private equity firms, venture capitalists, and tech companies like Google, Intel, Cisco, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and PayPal making significant bets, despite the uncertainty in the region. With Startup Rising , he marries his own observations with the predictions of these tech giants to offer a surprising and timely look at the second stealth revolution in the Middle East-one that promises to reinvent it as a center of innovation and progress.|

The exact steps you take depend highly on the database you are trying to import into. All major databases have easy to use processes for importing directly from CSV files. Most also allow you to use other delimiters such as TAB, PIPE and more.
First thing to know is that you may have trouble if you try to view the data using one of the following types of program...
- A spread sheet program (Excel, Open Office, Google Docs).
- A light weight database program (MS Access, Foxpro, SQLite, OpenOffice)
- A word processor or text editor (notepad, gedit, write)
These types of programs are not designed for large volumes of data. You might get away with these if you are viewing the sample data but the full data set simply won't work.
You need to import the data into a robust database program. This can be a high grade database ready for commercial use or a medium grade database program that is available for free. Some commercial grade databases have lighter versions that are free and will work for accessing the data. Here are just a few that you can investigate...
- MySQL – Free and powerful for Linux, Windows and Mac
- MS SQL Server – Free and Paid versions available for Windows
- Oracle – Free and Paid versions available for Linux, Windows and Mac
- IBM DB2 – Free and Paid versions available for Linux and Windows
- Ingress – Free and Paid versions available for Linux and Windows
Please not that depending on your use, the “free” version of some databases may not be available to you. Please do your research before choosing a database server to fit your needs.
The exact steps you take depend highly on the database you are trying to import into. All major databases have easy to use processes for importing directly from CSV files.
Because databases are always updating, the import process can change over time, we are not going to tell you exactly how to do the import here. Instead we are going to give you some suggestions.
First, it is important to know what database you are importing to. The data files that we provide on this site are far too large to view in a spreadsheet program like Excel or Open Office so you need to import directly into your database. The steps for doing this type of import can easily be found by performing a quick search.
