About the project:
Thanks for taking time to check out our Zoomal campaign page. If you are short on time, we’ve shortened the idea so that you can easily see what we’re doing and support us.
What we are doing in 3 words :
Security Community Collaboration
In a tweet :
HackZone will be a coworking hub in Cairo providing a collaborative space for local small businesses or entrepreneurs to support and learn from each other.
It will provide working environment for everyone in all fields, focusing on developing the concept of information security and defensive techniques.

The back story :
*Before we start our Story , Please watch this
We are a group of researchers in information security and defensive techniques field.
Two years ago we had an idea of establishing “ Hacking15 “ a community that targets everyone interested in technology and alternatives solutions especially undergraduates. It is dedicated to helping you learn to read, write, and speak Hackers Language in order to improve your quality of life and ability to participate in the community, enriching the Arabic content due to its rareness in this field; so we publish our contents mainly in Arabic Language, but also it will be available in English.
Achievements: More than 1210 individuals trained between 22/6/2013 – 30/11/2014 and this was done through initiatives, workshops, and E-learning.
Now we are seeking to construct a security focused zone accompanied by a coworking space.
A Space and a plan:
HackZone will consist of 6 zones as follows:
A simulating environment enables the security researcher to practice, using the available tools and gain more experience.
It will contain tools as:
This zone will be available for holding sessions (mainly in security field) given by experienced technicians. The subjects taught in these sessions can be applied in pentest zone.
This zone will be available for rent by other communities and entrepreneurs starting career in educational field to hold their sessions.
It will contain: white board, projector, and about 12 chairs.
This zone will provide several categories of books, mainly: Security, Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing. Also general knowledge subjects will be available.
Some of these books are already available .
This zone helps entrepreneurs in the field of information security to create and develop their ideas and also will be an open zone for everyone to think and develop their ideas. It will contain about 6 chairs and desks.
This zone specified for production of software and ideas developed in creation zone mainly concerned by security and there will be shared and private desks available for rent by small businesses that need to produce their own software programs.
It will also be a working area for our team; we aim to produce DIY 3D Printer, anti theft cinema, and two softwares per year, mainly in Arabic but will be also available in English.
This zone allows entrepreneurs to display their products and ideas, also a flea market will be held for security tools and softwares.
Events will be held in this zone and will also be available for rent by small businesses to hold their events and display their products and ideas.
This co-working space can be treated as one unit by the following workflow:
