Introducing Jinan Alrawi
Jinan Alrawi has been an entrepreneur from an early age, starting at the young age of 12 selling pizza, and later doughnuts in the neighborhood of her birth city Baghdad, Iraq. Well-travelled, she has lived in Asia, Africa, North America and Europe.
Jinan has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, setting up her first business while in college in San Francisco, California, successfully introducing a European consumer product to the U.S. market when it had failed 5 years prior.
In the mid 1990’s, when the European telecom market was being deregulated, Jinan joined a fast-growing American telecom start-up in Brussels and worked with a telecom dream team. So technology is nothing new to her. In 2008, when the opportunity to work with airports came up, she didn’t hesitate and worked for two airport software companies from Sweden and Canada.
On a daily basis, Jinan conversed with airport directors, planners, designers, engineers and government agencies. During these 4 years, she realized that engineers were so immersed in their projects, they did not know about software solutions and tools that can help solve their challenges. It was then that Jinan got the idea to develop a digital asset (website) that offers insights, tools and services to airport professionals and engineers, and New Airport Insider* was born.
Jinan Alrawi graduated with honors, from San Francisco State University in 1991 with a Bachelor’s of Science in International Business.

In her spare time, she likes to relax by cooking international dishes like lasagna or stuffed wine leaves (dolma), make hummus or bake a delicious banana bread!
