We are a family office backed investment firm and a venture builder. Our team consists of entrepreneurs with diverse backgrounds in blockchain, data, enterprise technology, and consumer goods. We have launched, scaled, and sold businesses across the Middle East, Europe, and the US.
We believe that good companies start by building businesses that demonstrate three core characteristics: desirability, feasibility, and viability. We help entrepreneurs plan their business at very early stages.
Getting to product-market-fit is one thing; executing an effective go-to-market strategy and generating positive cash-flow are arguably more important. We help entrepreneurs with financial and operational sustainability.
Our deep sector experience reflects in the opportunities we look for. We primarily target big data, blockchain, fin-tech and consumer businesses although we have invested in other areas as well.
