Integreight is an ICT company that offers products and innovative solutions to tech-savvy users – whether electronic hobbyist or in the education market.

Integreight started their business with 1Sheeld, an affordable product that allows makers and engineers to use their smartphones in their electronics projects. 1Sheeld consists of two parts; a mobile app that opens all sensors and capabilities of a smartphone, and a physical board using a bluetooth module to communicate with the smartphone and can also be attached to electronic devices.

It attended the MIT Arab Enterprise forum, notably and pitched its project at the MIT Digital Summit. Integreight's product got international recognition after a staggeringly successful campaign on Kickstarter, a crowdfunding platform - when the company achieved their target fund of $10,000 in less than six hours.

1Sheeld was funded through a massively successful Kickstarter campaign - having raised $85,210 USD - or eight times the original goal. The company had already closed its first investment round led by the accelerator and incubator Flat6Labs, followed six months later by a second round led by Cairo Angels. Integreight is currently working with distributors all around the world, notably in the US and around europe and the startup company plans to partners with investors to scale up in south america and other countries in Asia.
