Founded in 2020, Ezzal allows vehicle owners to offer services to anyone who needs to transport items -appliances, furniture, machinery, or materials. It helps businesses and individuals find the right and reliable carrier for their needs and avoid being surprised by high costs and poor service quality. 

Mohamed Badr launched the app in Morocco instead of Egypt where he was born and raised "due to the economic conditions in Egypt, such as inflation and the low local currency, in addition to the authorities imposing a lot of additional fees and petty cash that did not exist in the past, such as security permits." 

The app is now accessible in every city in Morocco and neighboring countries like Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal, Mauritania, and Senegal. The company also plans to expand to other countries in North Africa and the Middle East but has yet to make plans to expand to Egypt.

Before launching Ezzal, in 2017, Mohamed Badr co-founded LarusDubai, a Dubai-based startup that provides freight forwarding, customs clearance, transportation, and courier services. In 2021, he launched Megamaa, a rain management tech that created a natural material of the same name to solve flooding problems. In submerged cities, the material can be thrown around before rains. It then collects rainwater that can be used in drought-affected areas or to irrigate farms. 

In 2022, the serial entrepreneur founded Murabetsport, a crowd and event management company. He also founded Nazyef, an electric car charger manufacturer, and Neque contumelia, an artificial intelligence technology that aims to reduce injuries in soccer.

His professional career began in 2014 at Engineers Club of Alexandria where he was the inventory control supervisor. In 2015, he was hired by IEREK (International Experts for Research Enrichment and Knowledge Exchange), an international institution dedicated to knowledge exchange and research improvement, as an event coordinator. He worked there until the launch of LarusDubai.
