Campaign successfully funded on: 01 Mar,2015

This project has been successfully funded with $7,297 (146%)

Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

We always had the challenge of not finding a suitable place to work from, where we can meet people with the same mentality as us instead of being scattered around coffee shops. We couldn't find a place that not only hosts our meetings, but also a place that accommodates our ideas and potential, where we find ourselves among a very inspiring community. It's always been too expensive to rent a meeting hall in hotels or get an apartment to work from on a daily basis, and spending every day in a coffee shop is not an encouraging environment for anyone with passion to create something amazing. 

We, at AlMaqarr Coworking Space, not only provide the physical space for people to work from, but we also create and build the community that will definitely have an impact on every single idea that comes out of it.


We need your support to raise $5,000 to help create a better working environment for our community. The funds raised will mainly go to:

  1. Making our "shared coworking area" bigger, and hence hosting a bigger number of startups and freelancers.
  2. Building a highly equipped space to accommodate designers and developers and empower them to work more efficiently, including both the software and hardware needed.
  3. Building a kitchen that provides healthy food to our visitors, since we found that most people rely on fast food while working, and we want to increase our community productivity.

"We believe in the power of people. We invest in people in order to make every other thing happen!"

By pledging to this campaign, you are not only supporting AlMaqarr Coworking Space but rather a whole community of innovation and collaboration. Our coworking space is nothing without our amazing community of startups, student organizations, training entities, freelancers and NGOs. We exist to serve these people and help them delivering their impact to more people. We admit it. We exert all of our efforts just to create a healthy working environment that enables all of our coworkers to deliver their values.

That's why we believe that when you support our campaign, you #EmpowerTheCommunity as a whole, and indirectly contribute to delivering each person's impact. 

When you support AlMaqarr campaign you are supporting more than:

  • 90+ different organizations including student activities, training entities and NGOs.
  • 35+ startup businesses in the fields of technology, fitness, art, publishing, digital marketing and entrepreneurship.
  • 5,000+ community members with their own potential projects and ideas.

If you can't pledge, you still can support the campaign through one of the following options:

  1. Share the campaign video and encourage other people to support.
  2. Like our facebook page and spread the word about our campaign.
  3. Come visit us and attend our offline events. We promise you a tour and free coffee :).
And finally, don't forget to get the word out and make some noise about our campaign!

Thank you!

For everyone helped and supported our campaign, thank you!

Now we've successfully finished the first stage of the campaign and reached the $5000 target. It is the time now to reach our second target ($8000) to help us do the following:

  1. Establish an internet network to help providing our community with a better internet service.
  2. Renovate our Rooftop to be able to host our community whether for work, or events.

It's not impossible as long as we have you in our back! You did the impossible in the first 24 hours of our campaign and helped us collect $5000. So let's take the story to a whole new level :)

Please don't forget to share our video, and make some noise about the campaign! :)

Thank you <3
