Today The Next Web has an article about Laimoon, a new job site in the Middle East which is the first venture launched by HBT Ventures.
HBT Ventures (Honeybee Tech Ventures) is a newly established investment company based in Dubai with an exclusive focus on consumer internet ventures across the Middle East. The company will focus on identifying, developing and launching high impact online ventures with a wide reach to consumers in the region. (Let's wait for their website to launch on hbtventures.com which is currently under construction)
The partners in the firm are Ihsan Jawad, Zaid Jawad and Husain Makiya the co-foudners of Zawya (a Middle East business portal). They founded and run Zawya for a good ten years and then left it last year. The other partner in the firm is Abdulrahman Tarabzouni who is the regional manager of Emerging Arabia at Google.
We wish them the best of luck!
