Midway between a product studio, fund and incubator, we work with entrepreneurs and corporate institutions to fund, build and scale startups. That means taking an idea from a few words on a pitch deck to a real-life company with a product, team and customers.
Today, there is no shortage of good ideas, but the execution required to create a successful company is an entirely different ballgame, which is our strength.
Strong track record with further value to be created.
Founded by a team of former corporate and investment bankers, innovation officers and serial entrepreneurs, we combine traditional hands-on venture capitalist methods with a data-driven approach designed to uncover value above and beyond what can be read from balance sheets or P/L projections only. We believe that Saudi Arabia driven by the Vision 2030 is a place where scalability and network effects define value and produce exponential growth.

What We Do
Five-Step Process Ventures
Process is the core of what makes SV startups different than independent startups. One of the most important aspects of our process is the decision-making methodology of how and when to allocate and re-assign talent, capital, and support to various ventures. The key is to iterate quickly over many ideas to connect a team with the best possible company where everyone can win.
