Egyptian Arabic website builder wuilt, secures $535k seed funding.

Wuilt, has announced that it has secured $ 535,000 seed funding from UK-based MENATechnology Fund, Saudi’s Daal VC, Flat6Labs Cairo (from Flat5Labs Cairo 2019 cohort) and some angel investors.

Wuilt is an all-in-one Arabic platform (SaaS platform) launched in 2019 that takes the hassle out of web design. Its automatic platform generates fully functioning websites in minutes and allows users to choose between different pre-designed section blocks to make their websites. The platform allows users to create multilingual websites with just a click of a button.

Most international tools either don’t support Arabic or have a few customization options, and that’s where Wuilt comes in.

Ahmed Rostom, the co-founder and CEO of Wuilt, “We came across many friends and businesses struggle to get a professional website designed to their style and design especially in Arabic. This highly motivated us as a team to bridge this gap by providing a solution and hence Wuilt was created and launched.”

“Today, Wuilt’s all-in-one Arabic platform offers a range of features to fit businesses of all sizes and across all industries. Wuilt takes the hassle out of web designing and saves you time. In minutes, your business can have a sleek, and professional website,” he added.

Building and managing websites via Wuilt can start from a $5 (EGP 78.08) per month and offers a 14-day free trial.

Part of the funding will go towards launching an e commerce enablement platform, and to expand its presence in Saudi.

Marie-Therese Fam, Managing Partner of Flat6Labs Cairo, commenting on the investment, said, “Flat6Labs has been a true believer in Wuilt since they first pitched their business, and we’ve been lucky to partner with them early-on. The promising traction to date, the huge market opportunity in the MENA region and the amazing team behind Wuilt, were true assurances for us to increase our exposure to Wuilt in their second round.”

Abdulrahman Alqahtani, CEO of Daal VC, said: “Enabling SMEs by providing them with state-of-the-art technology to create their business’ digital frontier is not an easy task. The market that Wuilt is serving is considered to be the future of most of our regional economies. With robust solutions and scalable technology, we believe Wuilt will become a great success story in the near future.”
