Recognizing a problem within the marine industry, Mohannad Babaeer launched iBOAT, the first platform empowering tourists to plan and rent boats for vacation trips with safety and ease. Babaeer’s solution positively affects the tourism industry by applying a shared economy model to give tourists easy access to arrange their own trips on their smartphones using GPS. His vision is to expand iBOAT across the region to Dubai, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain and Jordan.
