The Iliad Team
We are tech investors with significant operating experience as former entrepreneurs and industry executives. Our team has a track-record in investments (venture capital, private equity, angel investing), operations (founders, CEOs, C-level executives, operating CFOs), and advisory (investment banking, management consulting).
Our operating background enables us to take an active, hands-on approach to our investments, and work with founders side-by-side as partners to deliver tangible value-add to their businesses.
We have an understanding of technology innovation based on 20+ years of experience in Technology, Media and Telecoms, and first-hand experience in commercializing and scaling companies in MENA and other geographies in advanced and emerging markets.
Based in the Middle East for more than a decade, we have a deep knowledge of the local markets and a wide network in the region. We know how to grow a business in MENA because we have done it before and know what it takes.
We bring to MENA a global perspective and know-how based on our prior experience in the US and Europe, and by leveraging our global network in tech, VC and startups.
Our Investment Team is actively supported by our Global Advisory Council of industry leaders from Silicon Valley, MIT and emerging markets, and Partnerships with leading institutions in the entrepreneurial & innovation ecosystem.
