Why Should You Raise Funds in Dubai?


As previous research has shown, startups and scaleups tend to aggregate around one main hub per country, usually the capital city. This holds true in the MENA region. Dubai alone hosts 229 scaleups (39% of the total recorded in MENA), attracting close to $5.2 billion in funding (approximately 57% of the total available in the region, and 95% percent of the UAE funding). The capital city is where you'll find the region's tech giants making record-breaking deals, such as Noon, Careem, Souq.com, Kitopi, and Namshi.


To further accelerate the development of the future economy, in 2020 the Dubai Council launched the Dubai Future District initiative, a new space with a fully integrated, end-to-end entrepreneurial ecosystem thriving with startups, venture capitalists, and emerging technology solutions. This set the stage for the launch of an AED 1 billion fund to support venture growth in Dubai, financing companies that will operate out of the district to drive Dubai's economy.


Many more are following suit with initiatives being introduced in the city to create the ultimate innovation system and investment environment. With progressive government policies and a supportive regulatory environment, there is no question why Dubai is the hotbed of ventures and investments in the region. More and more scaleups are also moving their headquarters to Dubai to not miss out on the growth wheel the city is on - and it is one you should jump in if you're serious about growing your business in MENA.





What's the Difference Between an Angel Investor and a Venture Capital Fund?


Angel Investors: High net-worth individuals who invest their personal funds into promising businesses, either personally or collectively through membership in an angel group. They would usually be the first round of funds that a startup may raise, as they tend to fund early-stage businesses if they share an interest or expertise in the field. They would invest a lower amount of funds and naturally receive lesser equity in exchange. They would usually undertake minimal roles, acting simply as mentors to help in decision-making.


Venture Capitalists: A firm comprised of teams that manage funds from third parties to finance developing business ventures. As such, they have stricter funding conditions and take more time in due diligence and making investment decisions. They would usually invest in growth or late-stage companies that have shown significant traction, but recently a number of VCs have begun to fund early-stage ventures. They would invest a much higher amount of funds and receive higher equity in exchange. They would also like to take an active role in the management of the business, often assisting in various areas such as business networking, product development, sales and marketing, further fundraising, and more.


Below, in no particular order, is our complete rundown of both these types of investment entities in the region.
