Lebanese startup Myki aims for its mobile app to reach as many people as possible and to influence their lives.


Priscilla Sharuk and Antoine Jebara, the co-founders of Lebanon-based Myki, which offers a free-to-download mobile app designed to enhance online security, talk to The National about their start-up and their plans for the future.


Who first invested in you?

Beco Capital and B&Y Venture Partners

What already successful start-up do you wish you had started?

Ms Sharuk: I am interested very much in the story of how a start-up began, so I have to say Airbnb because of the story behind it.  These are the things that make products tangible and human.

Mr Jebara: Google because I think that they solved a very difficult and unique problem at a time when the world really needed it and now they are diversified to a point that they get to work on so many things in parallel.

What is your next big dream to make happen?

Ms Sharuk: I would like Myki to be the leading platform for identity management on the market, to be in as many smartphones as possible and to be giving millions of people the convenience that they deserve.

Mr Jebara: We want to be the people to make digital identity secure.
