What happens when nine talents, born across far corners of the emerging world but with one common vision, join forces to untap the potential that the people in power refuse to see? Originally gathered by the mission to research the emerging economies’ tech scene, a restless team of problem-solvers found themselves lost in the sea of possibilities. An Egyptian technologist and VC founder based in the US, a Pakistani HR consultant based in Saudi, two Egyptian designers, an Argentinian journalist based in Egypt, an Egyptian frontline activist, and an Egyptian-Finnish psychologist based in Amsterdam. Inspired by the surreal capacities of their teammates, they joined forces to create something bigger: a tech platform to connect entrepreneurs and investors online. It really didn’t feel like a company. It felt like a mission towards something much bigger.
