Tell Us Something About Yourself.
My name is Salah Gomaa. I am the CEO of a Dubai-registered company called Gates Hub and an acquisition director in one of the leading Defi (Decentralized Finance) Projects in the blockchain space.
That’s Excellent! What’s Your Career Story?
Following my stint with Unilever Egypt, I decided to exit the corporate world and move to entrepreneurship and e-business in 2010. My online business started growing after the medium-term challenges posed by the Egyptian revolution in 2011.
During my subsequent four-year stay in Nigeria, where I continued to run my online business, I discovered the cryptocurrency space, and by 2017 I was entirely convinced that Africa and the Middle East are missing out on this “digital revolution.”
Despite many challenges and setbacks, I preserved and introduced the Digitization concept in the Middle East and expanded its reach to some African countries. My personal experiences further fuelled my belief that the blockchain revolution brings about indisputable opportunities and clear potential in the MENA market.
