Syarah is a Saudi-based online platform and marketplace for purchasing new and used cars. The marketplace currently has more than 100,000 enlisted cars.


In March 2008, Salah Sharif founded OpenSooq, which is a leading Arabic marketplace in the MENA region. In May 2015, he founded Syarah with Fayez Alanazi. The company raised a seed funding round with an undisclosed amount in October 2016, and the investment was led by Raed Venture Capital.
