From our community, to yours

Markaaz is a growing small business and family. We often say, “If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, let’s go together.”

Keeping it in the family

Our company is made up of multi-generation family business owners. Let us help you navigate the road ahead.

I grew up in a fourth-generation family business in the construction industry, which has taught me many life lessons. On my mother's side, eight out of ten siblings are currently the owners of small businesses.  I am blessed to see daily how their businesses contribute to our economy. I have also witnessed first-hand the changing needs in an increasingly digital world. We’ve created Markaaz to make sure small businesses can keep growing safely and securely for decades to come.”
