Yumoso’s most recent achievement includes the construction of a solar carport on the Frankfurt School campus, alongside an infrastructure to convert over 250 parking lots in 2024 into renewable energy sources. Currently, Yumoso is seeking to raise €750,000 to launch a subscription service and expand their team.

Hayi is a hyper-local social network for neighbourhoods, digitising the neighbourhood experience across the Middle East and North Africa region. Without a local medium for the exchange of information, goods, and services – neighbours are left disconnected from their local community and businesses are unable to market on a hyper-local level to customers that matter most to them. The Hayi app solves this problem by connecting you to everyone and everything around you. After acquiring 29,000 users in Dubai as well as successfully monetising through a B2B revenue model, Hayi is now raising a $1m seed round, with a lead VC already secured.
