Access: Except for the largest and most sophisticated investors in the Middle East, investors do not have access to private tech sector investment opportunities. TechInvest has developed a new access methodology.

Returns: Substantial value creation, often billions of dollars, has been realized in a short period of time for those investors that were able to participate in the new technology leaders, i.e. Facebook, Airbnb, Dropbox, Whatsapp, Uber.


Sample transactions: TechInvest has closed substantial investments with leading US technology companies.

Institutional Relationships:   TechInvest has longstanding and deep relationships with some of the most active and successful technology investors in the West and have closed multiple transactions in partnership with these leading investors.


Diversification Opportunity: Middle East investors have historically been under-allocated in the technology given:

i) lack of access to US/European opportunities

ii) limited size of sector in home markets

iii) over-allocation to other asset classes (i.e. real estate)

Local Interface: TechInvest, based in the Middle East, will offer prospective investors more seamless access to executive management of target investments and enhance transparency and accountability.

Functional Competencies: TechInvest partners have significant experience in principal investing and M&A (Blackstone, RDIF, Al Mal) and operating next generation, global technology companies (Sakhr Software, INgrooves, ATG, AWALNET).

Relevant Experience: TechInvest has experience in sourcing, evaluating and executing private equity investments both as principal and agent, and has worked extensively with the Venture Capital and Private Equity communities over the past two decades each. TechInvest has sector expertise in technology, enterprise software, consumer internet, and media and telecoms.

Existing Relationships with Tech Companies and Captive Deal Flow: TechInvest partners have already closed a number of transactions despite being active for just one year. Moreover, they have facilitated or made two GP investments, providing them with a new and sustainable source of captive deal flow. Finally, we have strong relationships with leading US tech investors and a number of new, emerging CEOs and their current operating platforms.

Proven Access to Capital: We have longstanding relationships and trusted advisor credibility with top Middle Eastern investors, both leading SWF’s on the one hand and leading merchant families and commercial operating groups on the other.

TechInvest's global team has the right capability mix to successfully partner with investors and increase exposure to top opportunities.
