FIG­URE 5: NUM­BER AND VALUE OF IN­VEST­MENTS BY YEAR

The to­tal num­ber of in­vest­ments per year in MENA has re­mained level since 2014, hov­er­ing be­tween 200 and 220 deals each year. This is sur­pris­ing given that the num­ber of in­vestors has in­creased by 75% dur­ing that same time pe­riod. At the same time, the to­tal dol­lars in­vested wit­nessed a 70% jump in value. This in­crease is mostly ex­plained by two mega-rounds, raised by Ca­reem and Souq.com: Ca­reem raised $350M, while Souq.com raised $275 mil­lion.
