The VentureSouq platform is designed to create value
for our portfolio companies and our investors

We have built one of the largest regional venture networks and have an extensive global network of VCs, institutions, corporates and other investors

We leverage these networks to offer impactful connections to portfolio companies to help expand and grow business across borders

We use our extensive investor relationships to drive additional capital into our portfolio companies

We are long-term investors, we enter a company early and often participate in subsequent rounds of financing

We work hand-in-hand with our investors and portfolio companies to ensure that we leverage strategic alignment

We are committed to building the regional ecosystem by designing,
producing and delivering high-quality content and events
