I’m Omar Kassim, a digital technology enterpreneur!
I work at Nomod, where we're building face to face payments.
I previously founded JadoPado, an e-commerce marketplace platform that we exited to Noon.com in May 2017.
I have also spent time working in and building out my family business, Esanjo Ventures, a trading, investment, and technology firm, where we've built interesting projects including Lunatap and Farfill.
Most of my interesting writing happens on my blog, including the occassional analytical post covering a startup from the MENA region such as this dive into Careem's cap table or this long post digging into Noon.com's beta.
The blog includes personal posts from a prior version of this site together with posts from the now defunct JadoPado & Esanjo blogs.
I also occassionaly write elsewhere such as this piece in Entreprenuer Middle East about how we went about building JadoPado.
I generally avoid doing events (the Internet is an incredibly efficient teacher), but do wander out when necessary.
I am however happy to speak publicly when the right opportunity arise or if I think it may be fun to do so!
If you think it may be fun to have me speak at an upcoming event, please feel free to reach out!
