Yomken is the first open-innovation and crowdfunding platform in the Arab world that tries to bridge the gap between 

(i) the challenges faced by micro- and small entrepreneurs (MSE) working mainly in low-tech and informal manufacturing industries (designing new products and upgrading current products and production processes) and 

(ii) the innovative ideas and skills of potential problem solvers (graduation projects, innovative solutions from recently graduated engineers, designers, researchers who are looking for a job, the Arab diaspora); and then, once the gap is bridged, using crowdfunding to finance the products that emerge from the matchmaking process.
