Discover the incredible story of OLX by Dubizzle, the leading online classified platform in the MENA region that has revolutionized the way people buy, sell and advertise services, household items, property, and job opportunities. Founded in 2005, Dubizzle quickly became a household name in the UAE, attracting up to 3 million page visits per month.
With a successful business model and the support of a booming technology sector in the UAE, Dubizzle expanded its reach to eight other countries in the MENA region, including Egypt, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia. In recognition of its outstanding achievements, Dubizzle was acquired by Prosus, a South Africa-based investor, through its subsidiary OLX Group.
Building on the shared values and synergies between the two brands, OLX Group and Emerging Markets Property Group (EMPG) merged their operations in Egypt, Lebanon, GCC, Pakistan and the UAE. As a result the OLX/Dubizzle brand launched into its new phase of growth highlighting the close association between the two brands and their commitment to delivering top-notch services to their customers.
With a rich history of success and a track record of business acumen, Dubizzle has amassed an impressive reputation in the UAE and beyond. The merger with OLX Group creates a powerful entity that leverages the strengths of each brand to deliver unparalleled value to customers across the MENA region.
