An Egyptian man named Mina Labib launched Tajerinn on Dec. 24, 2014, the first Egyptian communication network that aims to connect Egyptian manufacturers of raw materials to each other, locally for the time being, with plans to go worldwide in the future. The website is an attempt to connect manufacturers to each other and to consumers, and to develop the way the purchase of raw materials is done on other platforms, such as Alibaba and Tradekey.

Labib, 24, who studied business management at Valley Forge Military Academy and College in Pennsylvania, told Al-Monitor that Tajerinn allows producers and buyers of raw materials such as cotton and primary materials such as yarn to create an online account to show all the information about their product’s quality and price, and to allow the seller to communicate with the buyer without any commission fees being paid to Tajerinn on any sale, even if account holders permit the website to assist them in selling part of their production.
