Wakilni began in 2016 as a concierge service, but it quickly evolved into the logistics and technology company that it is today by capitalizing on a market gap, particularly among SMEs selling online.
Wakilni is now an e-commerce fulfillment partner for small to medium-sized businesses, offering a wide range of personalized and customized services to SMEs.
In the very first episode of the BerytechBeat, we chat with Yusr Sabra, CEO, and Co-founder of Wakilni. In her calm, passionate energy Yusr shares her journey in launching Wakilni, raising $2.5M in angel investments, retaining talent in financial crisis, finding the right partners, and aggressively scaling Wakilni during the pandemic to match the significant surge in demand.
She shares her thoughts on female entrepreneurship, the importance of gratitude, and becoming a mother for the first time.
