About the Project

Majed impressed on Stars of Science Season 3 with a project that generated advertising revenue while providing free wireless internet in public places, like coffee shops. Using his advanced knowledge of the advertising sector, Majed identified an opportunity in the market to exploit – the ubiquity of free wifi zones in the many busy places. Recognizing that public internet users represent a valuable audience, Majed devised a product that gave people what they craved – free internet – in return for viewing an advertisement.

Where’s Majed now?

After his time on the show came to an end, the Syrian teamed up with former Season 3 competitor Saad Al Qahtani to take the project, now named Fi Technologies, to market. The company allows advertisers to reach potential customers by showing them ads before they receive free internet access. Fi Technologies has become recognized as a leading advertising platform in Qatar since winning the ICTQatar business Award in 2014. To date, Majed and Saad’s company has surpassed its competitors by being featured in prominent malls, clinics, parks, and beyond.

In 2016, Majed moved to the healthcare system field by co-founding Droobi Health, a digital self-management diabetes and behavioral therapy platform.

The platform aims to enabling patient empowerment with mobile technology by providing a real-time connectivity, decision support for diabetic and health care providers, collaborative decision making with behavioral and learning science tools. This will help people change their habits, improve their health and reduce their risk of chronic disease.

The platform is now in a piloting stage in private and public hospitals in Doha.

Droobi Health has been selected to compete in GIST- Turkey 2018.

Personal Reflection

“We are candidates on Stars of Science not only to invent and discover, but to learn. Failure is one of the great learning experiences in life. Stars of Science gives us all the necessary skills to start our journey as an innovator” said Majed.
