Building better e-commerce brand communities
I co-build a new fragrance line called “Areej” with my brother, Abdessadek Aitelkatab.
Areej Fragrance is a Moroccan-omanise e-commerce brand that innovates in the incense industry and reinvents thousand of historical feelings. Since 2022 we are making frankincense more inclusive and accessible. Our goal is two-fold; to leave the world a better place than we found it and people better off before they found us.
Bayt Oman Maroc is the official frankincense and oud retailer in Morocco since 2021.
Building the future of startups: community studios
In 2021 I launched the Afterwork Lab. It started as a personal accelerator to transform my passions into projects. As I was doing the work, the community economy raised in the past 3 years, so I decided to relaunch it as a community studio to help friends of the studio with people, strategy, direction, and marketing for passion projects.
On the other hand, the Afterwork Club operates as a hybrid community to empower creators, community builders, and business founders, and encourage the passion economy among our community members through activities, check-in calls, resources, tools, and learnings.
