Aside from a record year for funding and number of deals, MENA-based healthcare startups also attracted more investors than any previous year. As shown by the chart below, this increase in investors is mainly fueled by MENA-based investors as opposed to international investors – in 2019, all industries saw 25% of their investors come from non-MENA countries, indicating that more inernational investors look for other industries than Healthcare. Nonetheless, the number of investors has increased by a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 33%, higher than the MENA average.
