MAGNiTT Predictions for Q2:

     Investment:

• Generally see an up tick in investments leading up to and during Ramadan before the summer lull

• Expect Q2 to have an increase in activity in number of deals and amount invested across the MENA Region

• Awaiting confirmation of VCs to close their new funds to start deploying

• Several deals have been closed but yet to be publicly disclosed

• Discussion that CAREEM is doing a $500M late stage fundraise. This would put MENA firmly on course for a record year of funding

 
     Venture Capital Firms

• We have noted the emergence of new family offices playing in the VC space

• Existing VCs in KSA, Egypt & UAE are actively looking for opportunities to invest

• TechStars Demo day, ArabNet competition, MiT Finals to take place in Q2
