I definitely recommend MBRIF to any startups at any stage as long as you have a clear objective set and are willing to come in with humility and a desire to learn more about your business and yourself as a business person and. The team at MBRIF are great, they have a lot of amazing inputs. I do not think we left a single session without feeling our eyes have been opened in tangible and intangible ways.

I could go on and on about the help that MBRIF has done to our fledgling startup in digitizing the region’s insurance ecosystem, but actions speak louder than words: we only launched our live blockchain platform – the first of its kind in the Middle East – in October 2019, and we’ve already reconciled AED 30,000,000+ between insurance companies. During that time, The MBRIF team was with us both in person and over the phone in the afterhours consulting us throughout our launch.
