BOOSTING AMAZING ENTREPRENEURS FROM GROUND ZERO INTO OUTER SPACE

OUR INVESTMENT REMIT


We invest in resourceful and daring founders with unique visions, operating cultures and IPs who are aiming to build decacorns by tackling global white spaces. The best way to connect with us is by finding a warm introduction to one of the partners or our investment team members.


SECTOR

We follow innovative founders who build for the future. We have an affinity for original business models that resonate with us and can scale rapidly while remaining capital efficient.


STAGE

We lead Seed to Series A rounds where we aim for an initial ownership of 20%. Our investment amount can range anywhere between $500,000 to $5M, depending on the stage of the deal and how much Product Market Fit is demonstrated.


GEOGRAPHY

We invest primarily in founders and/or engineering teams that are based in the GCC, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. We opportunistically invest in early-stage start-ups that aren’t necessarily based in our region, but to which we can add value through our vast regional and global network.

OUR VALUE ADD


We view ourselves as lieutenants in an army led by our founders. We are there when they need us, and on the sidelines when they don’t – during both the good and tough times. We champion our founders to make sure they are able to focus on the health of their company and team. We look to create transformational value for our portfolio companies through:

  • Fundraising: this includes helping with fundraising through our dedicated team to assist in raising growth capital from our network of global top tier investors.
  • Network + Talent: accessing key decision makers, including regulators where necessary, helping with business development and helping recruit for crucial roles.
  • Data: through leveraging our in-house data analytics engines, we provide our portfolio companies with ongoing analytics insights focused on the quality of product market fit.

OUR STORY


As ex-entrepreneurs ourselves, we know what it takes to get a startup off the ground.

We were in your shoes 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. Ultimately, as Dubai’s first early-stage venture capital fund, our vision is to reinvent the Middle East by investing in founders tackling massive white spaces globally and on a journey to become decacorns.
