The first six months of 2017 saw 88 closed deals amounting to $290 million in start-up finding according to MAGNiTT’s recently published MENA Funding Report Card H1 2017. The report highlights a healthy appetite for investment in MENA start-ups and points to a healthy and growing ecosystem, according to MAGNiTT Founder, Philip Bahoshy. He added that this strong start to the year could see the MENA region matching, if not exceeding, 2016’s funding figures.
