Our Founding

SmartCrowd was founded by Siddiq Farid and Musfique Ahmed in 2018 and changed history by becoming the first fully regulated* digital platform for real estate investments in the MENA region.
*Regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA)

Sandbox & Early Stages

Being the first and only platform for real estate investments in the Middle East wasn’t easy, we needed to show what we are made of and gain the trust of our beloved community. In order to do that, we felt being regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority lies in the interest of our users and us. So for the first year, SmartCrowd was under DFSA’s sandbox testing license and graduated to it’s full license in 2019. This is where we knew it is just the beginning of an amazing journey!
