After noticing a gap in the market for a product tailored for mother and children within e-commerce, Mona Ataya along with Leena Khalil founded Mumzworld. Today the brand serves more than 2.5 million mothers across the region, with sales having doubled in the last few years. Mumzworld today stocks over 1,800 brands, with exclusive retail and distribution rights to over 200 global brands making them the largest catalogue of regional and global original brands under one umbrella. In late 2018, the brand bagged $20 million in funding led by Gulf Islamic Investments—the largest round for a female-led tech startup in the region.
