Palestinian entrepreneurs Abed Al Hamid Al Fioumi and Mohammed Belbol started Sanabel to build technical solutions in Palestine, including smartphone and tablet applications and that target every Arabic user.

To build their startup, the founders have made sure that their team coordinates effectively when it comes to enacting their creativity in drawing, designing and programming the applications to ensure the production of high standards apps. Being based at Gaza's Business and Technology Incubator (BTI) has also helped the team hone their skills and receive mentorship and advice while buildng their apps.

Part of their goal, the founders explain, is to change the stereotypical image of Arabic apps globally, by producing sleek, professional Arabic apps for local and regional users.
