Mostafa – Be Social App
The success story of our old student Mostafa, previous student of HackYourFuture and a former IT-student in Damascus, has to do with his vision of how the social media of modern days clouds our ways of being social. Instead of engaging in real conversations, we choose to live part of our lives somewhere else, namely on social media.
During our Startup Weekend in October, Mostafa and his team worked on a business idea for an app that promotes and rewards being offline in certain settings, such as restaurants and bars. Mostafa’s talent, drive and skills were noticed by one of the mentors at the Startup Weekend. Mostafa got offered a job, and, in line with our vision, was encouraged to drop out of the Launch Programme and take the very challenging but certainly rewarding job opportunity.
