It enables businesses to discover, contract, collaborate, and pay influencers who market and sell for them at scale. Today, 50,000+ influencers and businesses across 250+ cities are on Walee.pk.
Encore Pay is a fintech startup, which provides a digital payments platform to financial institutions, including banks, telecoms, and payment networks.
SE Drop (Save Every Drop) offers two product lines – wastewater recycling systems to deal with water scarcity; and natural, alcohol, and chemical-free disinfectants.
All three startups have gained significant public traction . Walee.pk is in discussions with major global and regional brands, PR, social and digital agencies to implement scalable solutions for a 2021 while rolling out via www.walee.ae.
While SE Drop has attracted interest from Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), Dubai Municipality, Fujairah Municipality, UAE, and private investors from Bahrain and Turkey for utilization of wastewater recycling management systems.
