OrderJet, a Bahrain-based app to digitize restaurants’ operations through the provision of QR code services, pick-ups, and bring-to-car services, raised $125k from Hope Ventures, the investment arm of Hope Fund and producers of the Beban TV show, and a Saudi angel investor Dr. Abdulelah Algosaibi.
“We are excited about this investment from Hope Ventures and Dr. Abdulelah Algosaibi because it helps us in achieving our mission and enables us to expand our services to the rest of the region,” Ali Haji, Co-Founder, and CEO of OrderJet said.
The startup was co-founded in 2020 by Ali Haji and Yusuf Almahmood to streamline and ease operations for the F&B sector in Bahrain.
Fajer Al Pachachi, General Manager at Hope Ventures said in the press statement that Beban aims to be a regional investment platform that matchmakes high-potential businesses with investors who exponentially help them scale beyond local borders.
This is the second edition of the Beban TV show which is an Arabic entrepreneurship-themed reality show that airs every Wednesday on Bahrain TV and AlRai TV, as well as on the video-on-demand platform Shahid.
Two other startups, Steel Masters, a Bahrain-based manufacturer that makes customized barbecue grills, smokers, food trucks, and equipment, and Frozen Nutrition which makes detox cubes and frozen fruits that are sugar and preservative-free, received investments in the first episode of the show.
