I got here throughout Handiss the opposite day, and I need to say I cherished what this Lebanese startup is doing. Principally, Handiss is an online platform that connects engineers and designers to firms or people that want their providers.
Handiss was based by two Lebanese engineers that lived and labored within the GCC, however determined to come back again to Lebanon and provides fellow engineers and designers a straightforward resolution to search out work that matches their schedule and ambitions.
Handiss was lately chosen together with 7 different start-ups to undergo a Three-month acceleration program at UK Lebanon Tech Hub, which implies they’re gonna be rising and increasing additional.
It is a nice initiative, particularly given how dangerous the job market is for architects and engineers in Lebanon in the mean time. It’s arduous to discover a full-time job with so many engineers and designers, so this platform may assist these struggling to search out the correct job, with out sitting at residence doing nothing within the meantime. It’s additionally a terrific place to discover a side-project to go together with your full time job.
One factor I used to be delighted to listen to once I had a chat with the Handiss staff, is that their platform is 33% ladies engineers and designers, which is outstanding, provided that solely 11% of the skilled building market worldwide are ladies.
