MRHB DeFi expands Asia presence with investment from Sinofy Group
By Leandra Monteiro
The world’s first inclusive and ethical DeFi ecosystem platform MRHB DeFi has received a strategic investment from Sinofy Group, a tech consulting management firm headquartered in Shanghai. Sinofy supports revolutionary tech companies to help them gain prominence in China and Southeast Asia.
The investment includes a strategic partnership which sees MRHB DeFi join hands with Sinofy to fulfil the former’s vision of bringing an ethical, community-first focus to the world of decentralized finance. Sinofy Co-founder and angel investor Amirsan Roberto has taken the partnership a step further and joined the halal DeFi ecosystem start-up as the Head of Investments and Partnerships.
“Joining as Head of investments and Partnerships is a reflection of my commitment to and conviction in Marhaba’s vision,” explained Amirsan Roberto. “This is the first step we are taking in establishing our group venture fund and we are honored to have MRHB DeFi as our first institutional investment.”
“We welcome Amir and Sinofy Group as part of the Marhaba family of partners and investors,” said Naquib Mohammed, CEO and founder of MRHB DeFi. “Since our early beginnings, Sinofy has actively supported our marketing efforts and aligning Marhaba with Sinofy’s deep regional expertise will bring us more visibility across Asia and beyond.”
Indeed the partnership will also see the parties collaborating on Sinofy East European Division’s upcoming We Challenge 2021 Hackathon in Ukraine. With a gathering of 1,500 participants, 50 global media partners, 20 IT communities and 10 strategic partners, the hackathon is gearing up to be one of the most anticipated developer conventions in the region.
MRHB DeFi will be coming on as an Official Sponsor at the event, with CTO Deniz Daikilic providing a keynote address as well as engaging in a panel discussion that includes CEO Naquib Mohammed and Head of Investments & Partnerships Amirsan Roberto.
