BOOSTING AMAZING ENTREPRENEURS FROM GROUND ZERO INTO OUTER SPACE

APPLY FOR LIFT OFF

BURNING FACTOR


As an early stage venture capital firm in the UAE, our vision is to reinvent the Middle East through innovation and technology entrepreneurship.

Whether at the Seed, or through to Series B, we love investing and supporting early stage technology ventures in the Middle East. As ex-entrepreneurs ourselves, we know it’s not always easy to get a startup off the ground. We were in your shoes once upon a time, and we’ve gone through the journey too, from the kernel of an idea, and all the way through to raising funds to build something special.

LAUNCHING ANGLE


The launching angle is crucial to the successful launch of a rocket ship into outer space and is extremely rare. It is the optimal point at which the fundamental attributes for successful propulsion join together. Just like in the case of a startup, we believe that there is an optimal balance of various attributes and elements that drastically increases the likelihood of success and is crucial to making the right investment decision.
