About this event

With a background in finance, corporate banking, and consulting Ahmad decided to take the leap and plunge headfirst into the tech ecosystem. Ahmad realized there was a problem with logistics in Kuwait after he started researching the local delivery markets to support his minimum viable product, which delivered scheduled coffee to offices in Kuwait City as part of The Coffee App—a Startup Weekend pitch back in 2016. It was obvious to him that the market needed an aggregated form of logistics solutions during the delivery boom. And so, Armada was born!

Armada is an on-demand delivery solutions platform that allows merchants to deliver their products on demand. Outside of the rollercoaster startup life, Ahmad is an amateur tennis player, loves to explore and hike mountains, and cook food. He will always be Sirdab Lab's Chief Hustler. :)

About Armada:

Armada operates a logistics platform that provides the ability to manage deliveries by using an enterprise model (software as a service SAAS) for companies to manage their own delivery fleet or by accessing the on-demand platform to dispatch to a locally sourced fleet. Armada is also working on a supply chain logistics platform to support freight forwarding and international shipments.

Armada aims to simplify logistics for businesses by providing tech solutions in last-mile delivery, fleet management, and end-to-end supply chain logistics.
