How to build a leading digital payment solution, with Islam Shawky

Startup Confessionals

Entrepreneurship

Today’s episode is with Islam Shawky, the Co-founder, and CEO at Paymob, the leading digital payments provider in the MENA region. Islam started his career during his studies at the American University in Cairo (AUC) to build Paymob, which has grown to process millions of transactions through the online and offline digital solutions.

We talk about the following and so much more:

✅ His product roadmap and when he knew he had a product market fit
✅ Why he decided to start a payment company, and especially in an ecosystem that doesn’t always support the most innovative payment solutions
✅ How he was able to masterfully shift his thinking during the pandemic and adjust his product strategy based on the needs of the market
