About Shorooq Investments
We are a new kind of investment company in the region – bringing best practice from Silicon Valley to the most exciting new companies in the GCC, while leveraging our founders’ San Francisco Bay Area network to gain access to the best venture investments in the United States. We aspire to help entrepreneurs in their journey to bring world-changing ideas to market – regardless of where they come from.
Over the last decade, the early-stage funding environment has dramatically changed. In the United States, there are an abundance of financing options that founders can choose between as they look to build their companies. Nearly 70,000 companies received funding through angel networks and 3,000 through venture capital firms annually, according to CB Insights.
Today the financing menu available to Gulf entrepreneurs is far more limited – we hope to change that.
A Great Business at a Fair Price is Superior to a Fair Business at a Great Price.
