OneOrder, the Egyptian catering logistics and technology startup, has just raised another $3 million after a recent round of funding, with a view to boosting the firm’s core technology offering and upgrading in-house operations.

The latest funding round was led by Nclude, an investment platform that describes itself as an “Innovation Engine powered by tech startups”, as well as venture capital firm A15, and delivery giant Delivery Hero.

The fresh capital injection will help boost OneOrder’s in-house operations, improve sales and market share, and allow the firm to recruit top talent and improve its proprietary technology. In addition, OneOrder will now be able to scale its offline operations, expanding its network of warehouses further across Egypt and the MENA region.

“Aside from improving efficiency, we are reducing costs and impacting restaurants’ bottom lines. Joined by prominent global investors with deep knowledge and extensive expertise in our sector, we look forward to our next phase of rapid growth,” says Tamer Amer, co-founder and chief executive of OneOrder.

OneOrder has only been in existence since October 2021 and has already made a name for itself by using technology to address the inefficiencies faced by restaurants when sourcing supplies. The company’s platform allows restaurants to interact with a fragmented supplier base to efficiently source their supplies, such as meat, vegetables and catering equipment.

In Egypt, OneOrder has a potential market of 400,000 restaurants with an aggregate annual spend of $40 billion. Due to non-integrated supply chains, these businesses spend between 6-7% of their revenue to ensure logistical stability, so the future certainly looks interesting for this prominent startup.

In a world first, Lebanon’s AnNahar Newspaper has built an artificial intelligence model designed to carry out presidential duties for the politically troubled country. Lebanon has been without a sitting president for two years after thirteen failed attempts by the nation’s parliament to elect a suitable candidate.

The new AI President’s deep learning algorithm was fed over 90 years of impartial journalism from AnNahar’s archive stretching back to the 1930s. The AI leader analyzes not only historical data but also current events and is able to formulate solutions for all manner of political, legal, and governmental questions. By tapping into such a vast knowledge base, Lebanon’s AI President will have a deep understanding of the country’s past, as well as an unbiased take on the challenges the nation faces going forward.

The new AI President was unveiled in a recent live broadcast. Nayla Tueni, editor-in-chief of AnNahar Newspaper conducted an interview with the digital leader, asking relevant questions about the current state of Lebanon, and how to fix the country’s difficult political situation. AnNahar has also converted its print newspaper to focus entirely on the new president’s guidance on issues spanning everything from the economy to sustainability and the environment.

After the interview, Nayla Tueni commented: “As Lebanese people, and especially at AnNahar, we refuse to sit back and allow things to go on as they have. To not have a president for this long is unacceptable and has impacted the country negatively. If the parliament will not do its job to elect a president, then the people will bring to Lebanon a president”.

The AI President will soon be accessible to everyone at OurPresident.ai, Users will be able to ask questions in a similar manner to the likes of ChatGPT and Google Gemini. It is also understood that government officials will also use the tool to help devise new directives.
