About Us

MEVP is a Middle East-focused venture capital firm that invests in the early and growth stages of innovative companies run by talented entrepreneurs primarily, but not exclusively, in the Middle East Region with a focus on the GCC and Levant markets.
With offices in Beirut, Dubai and Silicon Valley and more than USD 100 million in Assets Under Management, MEVP is the largest and most established VC firm in this region, with clear cross border investment appetite.

MEVP has a unique combination of backgrounds and expertise that allows it to partner with innovative entrepreneurs and help them grow and develop, especially in their early stages.
We believe that, today, timing is ideal to start companies in our region. The region has a young, middle-class population that is rapidly growing, disposable income is increasing due to economic growth and societies are more aligned with global culture due to higher levels of connectivity.

These trends offer opportunities for innovative entrepreneurs to build market-leading ventures.

We seek passionate entrepreneurs with young companies or fresh ideas that are innovative in their fields. These innovations could be in their product, service, business model, or value chain. Their differentiated and proprietary edge will allow them to build a great brand, customer loyalty, and a robust, healthy business.

We favor the consumer technology, consumer products and consumer services sectors, but also consider ventures in other areas, such as logistics, food processing, and hospitality, among others.

testimonials

  • Anghami
    Elie Habib
    Co-founder & CEO of Anghami
    Smart-money is key when raising funds - MEVP fulfills it by all means. They are fast to jump in on promising ideas, forward-looking in identifying new opportunities and can open multiple doors through their wide network. Our relationship with MEVP extends beyond that of investor/investee; they are our advisers, partners and friends.
  • Box & Automation Solutions
    Anis Rahal
    Founder & CEO of Box & Automation Solutions
    Being a software and technology services company with clients all over the globe, we have found MEVP to be indispensable in the growth of our business in the MENA region. Their reliability makes us feel like someone is watching after our business with the same care as we do.
  • bookwitty
    Cyril Hadji-Thomas
    Co-Founder & CEO of Cedar Books
    MEVP team has supported us with capital and strategic advice as we were building our company. They helped us on several fronts including strategy, finance and team building. Their knowledge and insights on the e-commerce and broader internet issues makes them an ideal partner for a company looking to scale.
  • Falafel Games
    Vincent Ghossoub
    Co-founder & CEO of Falafel Games
    "We carefully selected MEVP as a partner as we aimed for investors who give faith to entrepreneurs instead of managing them, understand the realities and challenges of startups and provide support where and when needed. MEVP aced all scores. The strategic guidance, market intelligence, active support and super fast speed of execution that MEVP provides is way above and beyond the call of duty of a cash investor and that makes all the difference."
  • Gate2Play
    Muhannad Ebwini
    Founder & CEO of Gate2Play
    "Preceded by their reputation, we had no second thoughts about establishing correspondence with MEVP when we decided to raise our new round of investment. MEVP's commitment and support to Gate2Play was quite tangible from day one. Not only did Gate2Play benefit from MEVP's financial investment, but also from their solid expertise, know-how, and extensive network, those of which were significantly incremental to Gate2Play's core products. With full confidence, I would advise any startup on the fence of seeking investment to seek MEVP's services. Should they not manage to raise financial investment, they will surely benefit from their experience and skillfulness as an added value to their company."
  • Laimoon
    Ihsan Jawad
    CEO of Laimoon.com
    "MEVP is a very understanding investor. They show a true VC approach to investment and if they believe in you and your idea, then they will give you all the flexibility and support you need to execute."
  • Shahiya
    Hala Labaki
    Co-founder & CEO of Shahiya.com
    "Throughout the fund raising process the MEVP team showed a lot of passion and commitment in pursuing the investment opportunity. This made this first experience of raising equity for us almost fun. With MEVP, the communication was always clear, the decision making was fast, and they "walked their talk". We are happy to have them on our board for this exciting journey!"
  • The Luxury Closet
    Kunal Kapoor
    Founder & CEO of The Luxury Closet
    Raising the first round of funding can be a very difficult process. It can turn out to be a time consuming task that keeps you away from your main aim, that is to grow the business. During my journey pitching, discussing and negotiating with investors I would often say to myself 'If i was a VC, I would ask just the right amount, the right kind of questions. Always be a phone call away to guide the entrepreneur. Move quick, so I can go from asking questions to offering help' For The Luxury Closet, MEVP did just that.
  • Zoomaal
    Abdallah Absi
    Founder & CEO of Zoomaal
    Take the funds that MEVP gave you and multiply them by several folds. This is how much value they bring to the company from networking support, to financial and strategy guidance. I would definitely recommend them to local startups looking to compete on a regional and global level.
