As our friends already know, we were at the opening event for the new Istanbul Airport, which was TeknoFest. We helped organize Take Off International Startup Summit, the biggest free startup event in the world and that event helped us meet with lots of exciting startups, mainly from MENA.
We have great interest in startups from North Africa and SIS (Solid Integrated Solutions) is an Egyptian startup working on cybersecurity.

Tell us about your team.
We come from IT operations/management/services background and we touched customers’ challenges everyday hence we try to solve it.
We are 3 co-founders. Collectively we have more than 60 years of experience in IT, so we know what we do (we love to think so).
When and why did you found your startup?
In 2017. Through our work in IT, we faced IT challenges in security, management, operations, and migrations, hence we thought why not build something different that offers a value that customers feel every day, thus we found SIS.
What are your key and unique features?
we have multiple products; our flagship is Trigger-it (www.sisegy.com/triggerit). It offers 360 degrees of total endpoint control, management, and monitoring.
Companies that manage endpoints (PCs, Laptops, Servers, Network devices) focus on one or two areas. We cover the entire infrastructure and we offer IT tools throughout the entire IT spectrum from management to operations, monitoring to security.
What is your growth like?
Steady. Infrastructure solutions are different from web/mobile applications
Tell us about the numbers that matter to you.
We love to think of ourselves as the 1st Egyptian company that works in endpoints cybersecurity and infrastructure management.
We like that we started with almost zero funds and the company managed to cover its expenses starting the fourth month.
We love to remember that within 13 months, we were highlights as one of the top MS partners in Egypt CIT conference.
And of course we managed to work with a wide range of customers in Egypt, some of them are the largest in the market.
What are your plans for next year and the next 5 years?
We are working hard to expand regionally and transition from a startup to a regional corporation.
We are also looking to expand in gulf and Africa, as we can offer products that fit those markets.
Then expanding in the product line and adding more compelling features that help vertical customers in banking, Oil/Gas and retail.
Did you receive any investments?
Tell us 3 startups that excite you, and why?
Payme, HitchHiker. Those 2 really impress me in every word.
HitchHiker was a very tiny app, its founder applies in a competition I was judging at, the other judges didn’t like the idea and it was only me that thought it was a brilliant idea, and look at it now.
Same goes for Payme as its founder really working hard to make a big name in fintech.
