I am Kareem Elmashad Founder & CEO of (I am Dubai), a twenty seven years old on a mission to reach my highest potential in the shortest amount of time possible. There is something about this thing called potential that I am completely obsessed with. Quite frankly too many people do not maximize their time, energy. Having realized this I’ve therefore dedicated my life to inspiring others to make the most out of their life.

I am Dubai is a Mobile App that allows models and social media influencers to partner up with restaurants & brands, enabling them to receive benefits in exchange for hyping up the restaurants & brands on social media.

Is there a story behind the name, you have given to your business?
Definitely, our app called ‘ I am Dubai ‘, I wanted all members to feel they own the app while they saying ‘i am’ it gives them inspiration of owning the app and ‘Dubai’ belongs to the city where’s the app, as we are opening in more countries soon so more apps will be named belong to the country, as it’s easy to be remembered and advertised.

Our future scale-up plan is to open in Saudi Arabia ‘I am Saudi’ app & in Ukraine ‘I am Kyiv’ app, we already started for both countries soon it will be launch, on long term we planing to inter USA, Europe and Africa Markets.
