CMU-Q alums and seniors win MetLife Innovation Award at INJAZ AlArab
A team of Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar alumni and students represented Qatar at the Injaz AlArab competition in Kuwait, winning the MetLife Innovation Award.
The team created a shared platform for fitness classes across Qatar, so customers can find classes and services based on personal preferences. Called “TamaRun,” the platform won Best Company of the Year award at the Mubadara 2018 competition hosted by INJAZ Qatar.
All team members studied information systems at CMU-Q, a program that encourages using creativity and technology to solve problems. Maryam Al-Naemi and Latifa Al-Thani graduated in 2018, and Maryam Al-Maadeed and Dana Al-Sheeb are in the Class of 2019.
The Injaz AlArab competition included 80 entrepreneurs from 11 countries across the Middle East and North Africa region.
