The UAE-based digital authentication startup Nice to Meet You (NTMY), has successfully raised $1M in its latest fundraising round. The seed round saw participation from its existing Saudi investors along with Pure Group.

Founded in 2018 by Mohamad Baydoun, the startup aims to help business owners minimize physical contact within premises. The company initially started off as a business card exchange process. The idea expanded as the company’s founders realized that there was a larger need in the market to fill. 

We’ve been busy witnessing MENA-based IT Solutions startups and Enterprise Software solutions providers emerge with new technologies and acquire the growth capital needed to scale their operations. Over this year, MENA-based IT solutions startups observed a 580% YoY growth in Q3 2021, from raising only $30M by Q3 2020 to more than $200M by Q3 2021. As a testament to this, we’ve seen startups from MENAPT raising exceptional rounds. The KSA-based Unifonic, pioneering in cloud communications raised Saudi’s first Mega round this year, and most recently the Egypt-based startup Bexel raised a $560 Seed round as it supports inspection companies to digitize their entire inspection process, to increase efficiency and effectiveness.
