RELIVE PRIVATE EQUITY AND VENTURE CAPITAL
Middle Eastern economies have long been aware that while their reserves of oil and gas have been plentiful, they are also finite. Following the recent oil crisis, the region has accelerated its effort to leapfrog industrialisation and develop knowledge-based economies.
Leading this change are sovereign wealth funds, traditional Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) firms, and more recently, regional conglomerates and family-owned businesses who form the bedrock of the Gulf economy. They understand that technology is an indispensable enabler in shaping the country’s digital future and innovation.
The VC arms of these companies allow them to tap into new trends, bring global innovation into the region and drive business growth while offering a robust partnership in return, so as to commercially develop in emerging markets such as the GCC, and the wider Middle East and Africa for some.
The primary focus of the Private Equity and Venture Capital Summit is to offer a deal flow platform, featuring the different sources of capital in the region alongside innovative global investment opportunities.
The program tackled the shift taking place in the MENA region to build a knowledge-based economy that can sustain a post-oil era and the utilisation of technology as a driving force of this evolution.
I would like to acknowledge and thank our speakers, sponsors, delegates, partners and members of the media for the support they have extended.
