About this event

OMAR AKEL is the Co-founder and CEO of ifood.jo After picking up his degree in 'Applied Mathematics', O started his first culinary business at the young age of 22, a personalized food delivery service based in Canada. Unfortunately, when his business was still in its earliest stages; O was asked to return to Jordan to assist with the expansion of his father's company. While working in Jordan, O persisted on reviving his Canadian business with a different model that better suits the Jordanian environment. Initially it was considered impossible. However, O doesn't like initials (or initiallies)... ;D Now going by his full moniker, Omar Akel, he proceeded to form a partnership with his trustworthy confidant Zeid. Within weeks, ifood.jo turned out to be the most talked-about concept in town, garnering extreme popularity. Zeid Husban is the Co-founder and COO of ifood.jo Before starting ifood.jo with his buddy Omar. Zeid was already an established DJ in Jordan, hustling his way around the country, making bucks here and there. Zeid earned a degree in 'Electronics & Communication Engineering' from the University of Kent. Shortly thereafter, he went back to Jordan to get himself a job. While working as a DJ on the side and pursuing his daily 9-5 job, Zeid was not content with his performance. He simply saw himself as an acheiver who should stand on top of the world. Soon after Omar came back from Canada in early 2011, Omar and Zeid decided to partner on ifood.jo. With Zeid's enthusiastic attitude and motivation, Zeid now stands on the forefront in the battle of providing Jordan with digital solutions. A battle not every man can handle. But Zeid is not every man!
