Thinking Middle East

The Middle East Internet Group, a joint venture of MTN and Rocket Internet, supports the most vibrant internet companies in the region. MEIG's mission is to accelerate the growth and success of the internet economy throughout the Middle East. As an internet platform, MEIG is deeply committed to fostering entrepreneurship and innovation in the Middle Eastern online community.
MEIG is a joint venture of two global experts in e-commerce:

  • MTN Group: www.mtn.com
  • Rocket Internet: www.rocket-internet.de

  • Nurturing the online shift in the Middle East

    E-commerce is a global phenomenon, but is concentrated mostly in the Western world. MEIG sees a great potential in Middle Eastern markets that provide ideal conditions for online companies. Qatar for example drives a continuously increasing rate of internet penetration, currently at 96,65%.

  • Entrepreneurship in innovation

    Our companies thrive on flat hierarchies and intensive knowledge transfer between experts of different disciplines and backgrounds. Our young and ambitious entrepreneurs drive innovation at MEIG. We are actively supporting their projects with our network and our resources.
