Entrepreneurs have long been building the economic landscape in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), yet local investment capital, the catalyst for fueling business, had not been keeping pace.
Through our work in the region, we knew talented, determined entrepreneurs with exceptional companies who struggled to raise critical capital needed for building their business — to hire talent, enhance products and reach more customers. At the same time, we also knew forward-thinking global investors deeply committed to financing innovative technology but unable to find the right opportunities.
Guided by the conviction that investment-worthy ventures deserve a shot at building great companies, we formed a partnership of like-minded colleagues focused on first principles. Our company was born out of our collective commitment to high performers in the region and our experiences in entrepreneurial, corporate, government and consulting worlds.
Today, as we build our global network of advisors, we remain committed to enabling high-performing companies to accelerate value, unlock growth capital and tap new opportunities. That’s our story, in a nutshell, and it’s only the beginning.
