INVESTORS IN MENA BY TICKET SIZE
FIGURE 3: PERCENT NUMBER OF INVESTORS BY TICKET SIZE
Approximately half of the investor communities are early stage investors: accelerators make up a quarter, and seed funds and angel networks split the other quarter roughly equally. At the same time, venture capital funds represent the single largest group of investors, and account for one-third (31%) of the community.
For this report, corporate investors have been placed between venture capital and growth investors as they mostly tend to invest in the later stages/more developed products or businesses. The corporate investment space is attracting significant attention (globally and regionally), and is expected to continue to grow.
