We have built one of the largest regional venture networks and have an extensive global network of VCs, institutions, corporates and other investors
The VentureSouq platform is designed to create value
for our portfolio companies and our 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
Angel Rising is the annual investor symposium organized jointly by VentureSouq and startAD, the global startup accelerator of NYU Abu Dhabi. It has grown to be a leading voice for technology startup investments, attracting over 300 attendees each year and convening global and regional thought leaders in the investment community to build awareness, access, and a better understanding of what it takes to become an investor into technology-enabled ventures.
Leveraging our broader network of portfolio companies, co-investors and LPs we offer impactful connections to portfolio companies to enable cross-border expansions and strategic collaborations.
We launched the region’s first Conscious Investor Fellowship in collaboration with our partners startAD, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Sharjah Entrepreneurship Center (Sheraa) and Hub71, with over 50% female fellows and 70% GCC nationals joining our first cohort.
We provide market insights, data analytics and insights on the focus areas in which we participate in. This is a repository for our thoughts on early-stage investing and specific themes, theses and trends we’re examining along the way.
