May 2013 has been a great month for three Arab women: littleBits founder Ayah Bdeir, Wixel Studios partner Reine Abbas and Instabeat founder Hind Hobeika. Internationally, they’re shifting perceptions of women in the startup tech industry.

1. Ayah Bdeir ranked 33 in Fast Company’s list of the “100 Most Creative People In Business 2013” by way of littleBits, the lego-like circuit boards that are a fast-growing phenomena for adults and children alike.

2. Reine Abbas is one of the five women in Inc. magazine’s recent article, “Meet the 5 Most Powerful Women in Gaming.”

With her partners at the Lebanon-based gaming company Wixel Studios, they are pioneering the creation of highly imaginative, Arabized games such as their recently launched title Survival Race: Life or Power Plants.

3. Hind Hobeika’s swimming device Instabeat attaches to the side of goggles and keeps track of such metrics as heart rate, number of laps and calories.

Two years in the making, Hobeika is revolutionizing the swimming industry and is near to reaching her goal of raising $35,000 via her Indiegogo campaign. TechCrunch’s Editor-At-Large Mike Butcher featured Hind Hobeika and Instabeat in today’s article: “Instabeat Is Revolutionary HUD For Swimming Goggles You Can Back On Indiegogo.”
