Mohammed Jaffar was formerly CEO of Talabat.com, an e-commerce business he acquired in 2010. Under his leadership, the firm moved from a Kuwaiti domestic business to a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) player in 2012. In the span of two years, Talabat took the mantle as the market leader in its space and region. Shortly after, in February 2015, Rocket Internet acquired Talabat. Rocket Internet is a German-based e-commerce giant and widely viewed as the largest Internet platform outside of the United States and China. Talabat was purchased for US170 million representing the largest Internet technology transaction to the date in the Arab world. Today, Talabat and Mohammed Jaffar are recognized as pioneers and key innovators of the e-commerce space in the GCC.
