Microsoft & Foursan invest to create world-class IT firm : Estarta

Estarta's Middle East focus is timely as the region is witnessing a leap in technological advancement as the technologies are now more mature and less expensive.

JORDAN (Star) - Microsoft and Foursan Group announced today their investment and strategic endorsement of Estarta Solutions, a combination between two established international IT solutions leaders based in Jordan, Zeine Technological Applications and ONEWORLD Jordan.
"This milestone investment by Microsoft in Jordan's dynamic and fast growing IT industry helps to launch a regional IT leader focused on developing world class information technology solutions for U.S., European and Middle Eastern businesses and governments,' noted HE Dr Fawaz H Zu'bi, Jordan's Minister of Information and Communications Technology.

As an active player in the Middle East market, Microsoft's decision to invest in Estarta is in line with its continued efforts to support leading technology companies, further develop the IT industry in Jordan and use information technology as the key driver towards a stronger economy and regional prosperity. For its part, Foursan Group, a leading Middle East venture capital firm, recognized the great operational and technical synergy in the combination of Zeine and ONEWORLD, which is further enhanced by the endorsement and strategic support that Microsoft brings to Estarta.
Emre Berkin, Vice President of Microsoft Europe, Middle East and Africa, stated that this investment reiterates Microsoft's commitment to support strong development initiatives in the Middle East.

Estarta's Middle East focus is timely as the region is witnessing a leap in technological advancement as the technologies are now more mature and less expensive. Government and Businesses in Jordan and, more broadly, the Middle East realize their need to become more efficient and have global market reach through eGovernment and eBusiness initiatives. "We aim to be the leading IT powerhouse that helps transform organizations in the region, and we want to enable businesses in Jordan and the Middle East to compete and win in global markets," commented Ennis Rimawi, co-founder and Head of Business Development and International Operations at Estarta.

"Estarta has traditionally served US and European companies from Jordan, and it will now focus that world class technical ability to bring success to organizations in the Middle East," said Hatem Zeine, co-founder and Head of Products at Estarta.
