This past Saturday, Seeqnce debuted three new startups- Monaqasat, Cinemoz, and TransTerra, which each embodied an element of their motto, “Bigger, Faster, Stronger.” Karim Helal of Monaqasat introduced the idea of getting “Bigger” as he depicted the growth of his e-tendering company from Dubai to Beirut with Seeqnce’s help.
Karim Safieddine of Cinemoz, another website bringing Hulu’s model to the Middle East, noted that his company grew “Faster” once it joined Seeqnce, garnering funding just 30 days after the incubator- founded by Samer Karam- ripped apart his business plan and handed him a new one.
Eli Andrews of TransTerra Media closed with a presentation of his forward-thinking model for citizen journalism and news aggregation, made “Stronger” at Seeqnce. The website promises not just to showcase your content, but also to bundle and sell it to international content buyers.
As dressed-down hipsters convened in a humid room, Andrews encouraged entrepreneurs to share their ideas with investors, and guaranteed investors that “a world class idea” was in the room. As dressed-down hipsters sipped refreshments and resumed chatting in the open-plan, white-board covered space, it was clear that one more idea was getting traction- a startup dance party.
