Our major milestones achieved so far:

2) Incubated in the American University in Cairo - Venture Lab incubator.
3) Won the GIST Tech-I Spirit award during the Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2016 in Silicon Valley - June 2016.
4) In October 2016, we joined a one-month incubation program for foreign startups in Paris (at Paris&Co incubator). We did a research about the comics industry in France and allocated multiple potential partnerships.
5) We signed an agreement with the Swiss Pro Helvetia to launch a joint program to exchange swiss comics.

Our revenue model is to share the net comic sales revenues with comic books sold on the mobile app, and sell premium artists subscriptions to enable comic animation & mini-games in their published comics. Also in future we would enable brokerage services to connect comic stories with cartoon animation and media producers.
