The Iliad Team
We are tech investors with significant operating experience as former entrepreneurs and industry executives. Our team’s experience ranges from investments (venture capital, private equity, incubators and angel investing) to industry (tech corporate and tech startups) to advisory (management consulting and investment banking) and BD and deal-making.
We match our global expertise in the US and Europe with deep local knowledge of MENA. Based in MENA for more than a decade, our team has successfully launched, scaled and exited startups as founders, managed corporations as C-Level executives, successfully invested in private companies, and advised leading corporations regionally and globally.
Our commitment, operating experience, domain knowledge and regional network allows us to be an active, hands-on investor working with founders side-by-side as partners to deliver tangible value-add to their businesses. We know how to grow a business in MENA because we have done it before, and have the network to support cross-border growth.
Our Investment Team is actively supported by our Venture Partners, our Global Advisory Council of industry leaders from Silicon Valley, MIT and emerging markets, our Investment Committee, our Board, and our partnerships with leading institutions in the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem.
