We would like to engage with NL/Rotterdam-based startups to exchange on the opportunity of bringing innovative technology solutions to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region.

We are a UAE-based fund manager focusing on early-stage startups, primary focus UAE and KSA. Our strategy is to invest in startups that are powering the tech enablement and digitization of the MENA region's economy across key verticals including fintech, proptech, logistics, mobility and edtech via localized solutions.

We focus on post-revenue companies at the Series A and Pre-Series stages that have already achieved product-market fit and are now looking to grow their business and expand cross-border into new markets in the GCC. We also invest in innovative global startups that have developed disruptive technologies that can fill critical innovation gaps in MENA and are seeking to enter the region, with a focus on the UAE and KSA.

Our focus includes startups in Europe and in Emerging Markets that can benefit from entering the Middle Eastern & North Africa (MENA) region, and can contribute to disrupting key industries leveraging deep tech such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, AR/VR, and IoT. Iliad Partners leverages its operating profile, active, hands-on approach, and regional network to actively support our startups – with regional business development with key clients and strategic partnership, market access and regional expansion to GCC markets, finding and attracting the right talent, building and developing the Finance function.
