Maktoob was born out of a simple idea developed by two young entrepreneurs, who at the time battled the norms of traditional business in the Arab World, but with a vision that the Arabic Internet will grow and become an integral part of everybody's life, Maktoob became an inspiring success story in the region after its sale to Yahoo.

Jabbar was then setup by the same group of entrepreneurs, and continues to grow and make way in the internet sector in the region. It is in this spirit that we embrace any entrepreneur in the Arab World who is willing to innovate and take risks in order to create something great.

Jabbar nurtures such individuals and supports nascent ideas that are in line with its mission. So join our journey :-)
