The MENA region saw a record of $1 Billion dollars of investment in startups

Total funding was 13% up from 2019, although total deal count was down by 13% to 496 transactions. This increase in funding was driven in part by the $150M Series E round of EMPG, the largest investment in 2020. Later stage deals ($500K-$3M) increased by 52%, while Pre-Seed rounds (<$100K) halved YoY, a driver to the decrease in total deals
