Bey2ollak is one of two Egyptian start-ups which are US bound, following their participation in the NexGen IT Entrepreneurs Boot Camp last month.
Hearing the news that American and Danish entrepreneurs were flying in to Cairo, to host a seminar especially for Egypt’s up-and-coming start-ups, one of Bey2ollak’s five co-founders, Mohamed Rafea snagged a spot at the table.
Bey2ollak is the brainchild of five cousins. Aly Rafea, Mohamed Rafea and Gamal Sadek, all computer science graduates, were responsible for development. Mostafa Beltagy, a business administration graduate, took on marketing, while Yehia Ismail, an architect by profession, was responsible for the design and UI.
Bey2ollak is a cross-platform mobile app allowing users to share real-time information about Cairo and Alexandria traffic. Available as free Blackberry, Android and iPhone downloads, the service can also be accessed using the mobile site.
