About the founder
Adnan Zakaria Ammache grew up in Lebanon and graduated from International College in 2015. After graduating from high school, he travelled to pursue his undergraduate studies in Finance and Global Business at NYU Stern School of Business in New York, USA. Before his startup days, Adnan garnered work experience at a number of companies in the US including MetaProp NYC, Broadgate Advisers, Venture for America, and PathSpot among others.
Since 2018, he has been leading Presentail and its sub-brands including Hadiyatee as the Founder & Chief Executive Officer.
While pursuing his graduation at NYU, US, Adnan Ammache experienced challenges while sending gifts to his family and friends living in Lebanon on important occasions. From there, Adnan got the idea of creating a solution for Lebanese expatriates as well as for other countries that witness mass migration.
During his time abroad, Adnan made numerous connections and networked with other Lebanese expatriates with backgrounds similar to his. He discovered how expatriates have similar pain points, and that ignited his enthusiasm to launch a digital platform to help expatriates maintain long-distance connections through gift-giving.
Hadiyatee primarily targets Jordanian expatriates familiar with the internet and technology. These users typically reside in moderate to high purchasing-power nations including UAE, KSA, USA, and Canada among others. The platform’s user base mostly come from the 25 to 45 years age bracket.
The bootstrapped startup Hadiyatee is aiming to raise its first funding round to revolutionize the online gifting domain in the region by partnering with more vendors, improving technological infrastructure, and offering personalised gifting options tailored to respective occasions. Besides this, the funds will help the company add more manpower, become a regional brand catering to expatriates from other Arabic-speaking nations across the MENA region.
