During the summer of 2016, Amin Shaykho and Marwan El-Rukby were both working their summer internships. One day they ran into each other, and after a long discussion realized that they were both passionate about entrepreneurship with an aspiration for becoming leaders of a company that changes the world. A couple days after their first meetup, they met again at a local gyro place in Bellevue, WA. They sat for hours discussing ideas, yet with no avail. However, Amin happened to recall a discussion he had with his brother, Dani, on having a fast, easy, and affordable way to request someone to clean his kitchen. Quickly, Amin and Marwan began building on that idea, and soon enough completed their first prototype of a local platform that allows users to request and perform a variety of services. They realized the potential this app has to help the community. It makes requesting services easier for consumers, opens a new market for service providers to get customers, and allows young people who are not able to work a conventional job earn money. At this very moment, Kadama was formed.
