Jamalon's founder shared his epic journey with us! Insights include bootstrapping his startup with his 6 siblings, getting sued by JK Rowling for copyright and winning 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year' by Arabian Business & TechWadi.
As a teenager fascinated with computer programming, AlSallal volunteered for Ruwwad, an Amman-headquartered non-profit community development organisation, teaching other young people basic computer literacy.
With the support of Ruwwad’s founder Fadi Ghandour, who became his mentor, AlSallal launched Jamalon - which means ‘top of the pyramid’ - in October 2010. The company, which AlSallal has built working alongside his mother and siblings from day one, now delivers over 10 million Arabic and English titles to 22 MENA countries. They have also forged strong partnerships with over 3,000 Arabic and 27,000 English-language publishers.
AlSallal graduated with honours in computer science from Philadelphia University in Jordan, and earned a master’s degree in information technologies and telecommunications at Athens Information Technology in Greece.
Congratulations to Ala'AlSallal and the team.
