The models are also expected to hype the establishments on Instagram.

For the agency, Kareem is careful to select only models associated with a reputed modeling agency. This is because he believes that such models have a considerable reach on social media.

Explaining further, the proud founder says, “Our team works from offices in Kiev, Ukraine and Dubai to maintain the site and the app. The entire business is done online, and this gives us the flexibility we need.”

At a time when content creators are minting money through their presence on social media, Kareem Elmashad has chosen this unique concept for which he is not only being widely recognized but has also been honored with the title of “Influencer of the Year”, not once or twice, but thrice!


With the expansion to Saudi Arabia and Ukraine, Kareem is testing new waters, by providing exemplary services to the choicest of clientele. Buoyed by the success his app and business has achieved in Dubai, this gentleman entrepreneur is hoping for more of the same in the new markets too.
