About


Valia Ventures is the venture capital arm of Valia, a US-based firm strategically investing capital from a coalition of the Middle East and North Africa's current and future business leaders.

We invest from seed stage to growth for both enterprise and consumer companies, partnering with visionary entrepreneurs turning ideas into market leading businesses. We empower them to grow their companies into the MENA market by leveraging our experience, network, and presence throughout the region.

Model


Every aspect of Valia was intentionally designed to broaden access for portfolio companies to a dynamic international market of 380 million people.

We’ve assembled a coalition of leading family businesses from across the MENA region to act as investors, advisors, and customers for our portfolio companies. The process of aligning and engaging these relationships helps to accelerate growth and access to the market, providing an unfair advantage for globally minded entrepreneurs.
