Digital Deal Making Platform Launches To Resolve SME Financing Gap

In the era of digitization and the need for increased financing post Covid19 especially for the Small and Medium Sized sectors, a trusted deal making digital platform dubbed Maksab has officially launched. Maksab is an easy-to-use platform that makes it possible for corporate advisors and consultants to serve and assist SMEs with streamlined deal-making through exclusive emerging transactions and efficient management features.

Maksab connects advisors and private professional investors with SMEs that are seeking growth capital in a virtual environment. The platform is developed for corporate finance consultants and transaction agents known as (“Advisors”), SME business owners (“Sell-Side”) and private investors (“Buy-Side”).

The Maksab Platform leverages the Ethereum blockchain to allow confidential, secure, streamlined, efficient and reliable transactions between platform users by deploying Ethereum-based ERC-20 smart contract. The smart contract allows for Maksab tokens (MXAB) to be utilized on the network as a bridge currency and anti-spam mechanism to manage and close deals in a B2B environment.

“By adopting blockchain as an underlying transaction protocol and using the internet’s existing communication protocols, we allow deal-makers to facilitate B2B transactions in a streamlined and more efficient way. The deals that would usually take 8 to 12 months to close, can now take weeks or even days”, said Mohamed El-Masri, Founder, Maksab.

With the launch of Maksab, professional advisors and consultants can now support, consult, guide and prescribe growth strategies to entrepreneurs and their management teams.

El-Masri concludes, “In the end, Maksab is all about community, users can earn rewards in the form of MXAB tokens for their participation and support of SMEs”.
