PRIVATE EQUITY AND VENTURE CAPITAL SUMMIT UAE

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 industrialization and develop knowledge-based economies.

Leading this change are sovereign wealth funds, traditional PE and 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 venture capital arm of these companies allows them to tap into new trends, bring global innovation into the region and help them drive their business growth while offering robust partnership in return, to commercially develop in emerging markets such as the GCC, and the wider Middle East and Africa for some.

The primary focus for the Private Equity and Venture Capital Summit is to offer a deal flow platform, featuring these different sources of capital in the region, and global innovative investment opportunities.

The summit is designed to combine in one day, insightful panels led by key regional and international tech investors and experts and prescheduled introductory meetings between up to 30 healthcare, life science and ICT investment opportunities and key regional investors and strategic partners, to raise capital and form strategic commercial partnerships, in an informed and exclusive environment: The right people, the right place, at the right time.
