It also enables businesses to motivate employees and partners through rewards available on the temtem ONE marketplace. It also connects users to services like car-sharing, mobile top-up, on-demand artisans and doctors, financial services, and shopping.

In 2015, he founded CasbahTech, a startup studio that designs and develops innovative digital solutions in Algeria. Through that studio, he invested and has become a member of the board of Factory Digitale –an organization that remotely connects top African talent with European technical teams– the digital skills training company Code 213 and e-lerning platform iMadrassa.com.

Before venturing into entrepreneurship, Kamel Haddar worked between 2002 and 2005 at the technology company 3M, holding positions as a project manager and business analyst. Subsequently, from 2005 to 2012, he worked as a consultant in telecommunications, energy, and utilities for the independent consulting firm BearingPoint.
