Feb. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Few Americans would pick Amman,
Jordan -- a city of about 2 million in the heart of the war-torn
Middle East -- as a vibrant place for entrepreneurs and the
venture capitalists who back them.
But there Amman is, ranked as the 10th-best city in the
world to launch a tech startup, according to a 2012 list
compiled by Rachid Sefrioui, the founder of Finaventures, a
California-based venture-capital firm.
