Over 150 person interested in the mobile applications field in Amman, have participated in the pan Arab-tour which organized by Startappz. This tour was initiated to solve three major problems that facing the startups scene in theMiddle East. The first problem is the lack of apps utilizing the latest technologies in mobile devices such as NFC and Augmented Reality; Startappz solved this problem by arranging workshops and educational sessions. The second problem is the lack of confidence among Arab youth, Startappz worked out around this problem by presenting successful local entrepreneurs. Last problem is scattered talents; smart match making events is our way to gather those talents.
The event included specially tailored meetings between app developers and people who interested in mobile technology, where they exchanged experience in order to foster technical cooperation in the field of mobile apps; as well as providing an opportunity for cooperation between those developers as individuals and the Arab and international companies that specialized in the mobile apps field.
Several Arab success stories have been presented during the event. Mohammad Khawaja -CEO of Startappz- said: “We in Startappz try to support the startups in the field of apps development and mobile games, which address the mobile users in the world and in the Arab region in particular.”
