    The Potcast Productions (TPP), a leading Egyptian podcast production company, has successfully closed its pre-seed funding round with significant investments from Innovative Media Productions (IMP) and prominent investor Ahmed Tarek Khalil.

    Founded in 2020 by Islam Adel, TPP has rapidly established itself as a major player in the region’s burgeoning podcasting scene. Within six months, the company claims to have produced 15 diverse podcast programs, garnering an impressive 7 million listens and over 600,000 viewing hours.

    This latest investment follows an earlier funding round secured through the popular television show Shark Tank Egypt, which is produced by IMP. The new capital injection will be used to bolster TPP’s content production capabilities, expand its marketing reach, and accelerate the development of new, high-quality podcast series catering to diverse audiences across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

    “Securing this follow-up investment from IMP and Ahmed Tarek Khalil is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team,” said Islam Adel, CEO and Co-founder of Potcast Productions. “Their support validates our mission to transform podcasting in the region and propels us forward as we continue to innovate and expand our reach.”

    Ahmed Tarek Khalil, an influential figure in the startup ecosystem, expressed his enthusiasm for TPP’s potential, stating, “I am excited to support TPP in its quest to dominate the podcasting space in the MENA region and beyond. Their creative vision and commitment to quality make them a standout player in the industry, and I am confident in their potential to achieve remarkable growth.”

    Ahmed Luxor, CEO and Co-founder of IMP, echoed this sentiment, highlighting TPP’s innovative approach and ability to engage audiences through compelling storytelling. “We believe in TPP’s innovative approach and their ability to connect and engage with audiences through compelling storytelling. Our investment is a strategic move to back a company that we see as a pivotal force in the evolving media landscape,” Luxor commented.

    This new round of funding not only closes TPP’s pre-seed round on a high note but also positions the company for future growth and expansion as it seeks to revolutionize podcasting in the MENA region and beyond.
