ON A MISSION TO SAVE STARTUPS

We’re here on a mission to change the reality in the startups ecosystem in the MENA region where only a selected few get the guidance needed to succeed and the support to secure investment for their business.

Our model is making it in the hands of startups to:

  • Get the guidance from other successful entrepreneurs who’ve been in your place one day
  • Secure an investment for their business in that early stage
