The Arab Venture Capital ecosystem has grown rapidly over the past years. Whilst there have been many successful examples of fast growth companies in the region, the industry and regional entrepreneurs are facing challenges.

In this Tharawat Talk experts and entrepreneurs will address key questions around the future of VC in the MENA and explore the main opportunities as well as challenges ahead:
How has regional VC grown in comparison to examples in other countries and regions – and what can we learn from the VC industry around the world? What regulatory and ecosystem aspects need to be in place for VC to further grow? How can entrepreneurs best benefit from relationships with regional VCs? How will the story of Careem influence future entrepreneurs and the VC ecosystem?
