Tell us about the team behind ALFAZZA?

We are students from Applied Science University.  The team consists of A.Rahman Alfayez, Marketing Manager; ARahman Helal, Finance Manager; Ahmed Alsaeed, Sales Manager, and Rashid Eid, HR Manager. We started working on this project since last September with the goal of learning from this experience to implement it in our business. Each of us contributed his unique skills to make this happen. A passionate team worked hard since the first day and I am so proud to have worked with them.

How ASU supported you?

Dr. Ahlam Alethawi was our link teacher, and she guided us throughout the competition. She always supported and inspired us to move forward.  She and our college were always there for us, which provided us with the knowledge needed to complete our tasks in the competition. 

Tell us about Injaaz Bahrain Competition?

One of the best programs we have participated! We learnt how to build a team, how to be patient, how to think like an entrepreneur and how to be one. They lead us through first and most important step to enter the business market full off much needed information with such an amazing experienced staff. Getting to know the other teams from all over Bahrain was a privilege too.

What other innovative projects inspired you at the competition?

BTAG from Al Ahlia University who won the best product in Injaz Bahrain competition. The team was full of positive energy and passion, and their product was amazing.

How did you feel after the victory?

I can’t describe the happiness and pride! The hard work and the effort we put in our product was returned. That day will be forever etched in our memory.

To whom are you thankful for your victory?

We would like to thank Her Highness Sheikha Hessa Bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, chairperson of injaz Bahrain for this opportunity; Mr. Mohammed Almoayyed from Y.K. Almoayyed & Sons for the support, and most importantly our beloved university!

Who are your greatest supporters?

Coach Hejer Krichene such an amazing coach committed to the project. Developer Abdulla Bu Hammod who designed our application and continuously improved it. We wouldn’t have made it without them!

What are your hobbies apart from the above?

Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies. I love meeting new people, seeing historical sites, and experiencing new cultures. Throughout my life I have been blessed to travel to a many different places around the world. I love to learn about history and arts. Every time you travel, a whole new world is opened to you and a whole new way of thinking. In order to be a productive citizen of the world, you need to learn about it. I can’t believe how diverse the world is and what it has to offer. Traveling removes our monotony and gives pleasure. It also broadens our outlook and refreshes our mind. A good traveller can easily educate others. He can give us first-hand knowledge of people of different cultures and matters of another country. I like traveling very much.

What’s next for you?

We are focusing on building a company and reach every car owner’s phone to provide our services and to support entrepreneurs who are working in this field. We want to be the leading and most reliable app of automobile services in Bahrain and GCC.
