We are delighted to announce that ShipBlu has been admitted into the Y-Combinator (YC) Summer 2021 batch!

Y-Combinator is probably the world’s most famous start-up accelerator and arguably one of the best known institutions of Silicon Valley. Since 2005, it has been used to launch over 2,000 companies including Airbnb, DoorDash, Stripe, GitLab, Reddit, Dropbox and Ginkgo Bioworks. The combined valuation of YC companies was over US$ 300 billion as of January 2021.



ShipBlu is now backed by Nama Ventures

We are proud to announce that ShipBlu is now backed Nama Ventures a leading pre-seed / seed stage venture capital fund based in Saudi Arabia and focused on fueling innovation in the MENA region. Additionally, ShipBlu is Nama’s first investment in Egypt, demonstrating their strong belief and support in the ShipBlu team and our business model.


We went to market with our beta version in early 2021 and got amazing feedback from our merchants during the pilot launch. During the past two months, we have been working with our Y-Combinator partners Jared Friedman, Brad Flora and Surbhi Sarna to fine-tune our launch and prepare for large-scale commercial operations across Egypt. We have also been working with our other VC partners and Angel Investors to ensure that we are well positioned for our next round of funding.

The YC Experience

Being part of the fully remote Y-Combinator S21 batch is one of the most exciting and instructive parts of our journey at ShipBlu. Rotating between working with our team at our headquarters in Egypt during the day and learning from some of the best Startup founders until the morning hours really pushed us forward in ways we did not think were possible before.
