Menna Farouk is the Co-Founder of Dosy, a tech-based scooter and bicycle riding platform for women and girls. With a population of about 100 million, Egypt is one of the most densely populated and polluted countries in the world. Dosy aims to encourage women and girls in Egypt to ride scooters and bicycles by connecting them with riding instructors. Dosy users then have the opportunity to become a riding instructor once they have completed enough training. Not only does Dosy create employment opportunities for women, but it also contributes to reducing traffic congestion and pollution while challenging social stereotypes about women riders of scooters and bicycles.
