Amman, October 2014 – Jordanian entrepreneur and Founding CEO of Madfoo3atCom, Nasser Saleh, has been selected to join the Endeavor Network at the 55th International Selection Panel (ISP), which was held between 22 and 24 October, 2014, in Istanbul, Turkey. Saleh was chosen as one of 42 High-Impact Entrepreneurs representing 23 companies from Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Greece, Indonesia, Jordan, Malaysia, Mexico, Miami, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Turkey.
The ISP is the culmination of a rigorous multi-step selection process through which Endeavor identifies High-Impact Entrepreneurs who initiate private sector development, create thousands of jobs and build sustainable growth models in their home countries. Endeavor Entrepreneurs are chosen by top local and international business leaders, Silicon Valley venture capital executives and Endeavor Network members from 21 countries, including Jordan. After admitting entrepreneurs into the Network, Endeavor provides them with customized services delivered by local business mentors, volunteers from Fortune 500 companies, consulting firms and top USA business schools.
“Endeavor Jordan has experienced significant growth since its launch in the Kingdom, encompassing prominent entrepreneurs who provide the domestic market with innovative services and products under various sectors. We are pleased to include Eng. Nasser Saleh in our Network, as his professionalism and vision have helped create a paradigm shift in the caliber of e-payment services offered in Jordan and the region as a whole,” said Rasha Manna, Managing Director of Endeavor Jordan.
In turn, Saleh commented, “It is such an honor to be selected as an Endeavor Entrepreneur, and I have no doubt that it will prove to be an invaluable learning experience. Madfoo3atCom may have started as a dream of mine, but its success is the result of team effort and hard work. With Endeavor Jordan’s support, I am confident that Madfoo3atCom will continue to deliver bigger and better things for the e-payment industry in the Kingdom and beyond.”
Saleh founded Madfoo3atCom in 2011 as the first online payment platform in the Kingdom. By linking banks and billers, Madfoo3atCom enables customers to inquire about and pay their bills via efficient electronic payment channels that are available 24/7. These include ATMs, Internet banking, telephone banking and other e-payment methods. Madfoo3atCom recently won the Central Bank of Jordan’s (CBJ) tender to build, operate and manage eFawateercom, a nation-wide integrated bill payment system, making Madfoo3atCom the official operator of CBJ’s electronic billing service in Jordan.
Saleh is one of 21 Jordanian Entrepreneurs representing various industries to be selected by Endeavor Jordan since its establishment in the Kingdom in 2009. On a global scale, Endeavor currently supports 990 High-Impact Entrepreneurs from 629 companies in 21 countries.
