How to approach Ibtikar?
Our management team is ready to consider the ideas of any entrepreneur exploring an investment. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to present us with your idea or company.
In order to help us review your idea or startup company, we ask for an Executive Summary and Company Presentation (you may download the guidelines for both below). Read through and follow our guidelines, we have developed them to make the process as easy as possible for you. Please give us at least two weeks to review these documents before we respond to your approach.
We will provide you with our initial feedback, we may suggest a follow up meeting and, if we are interested in an investment, we will schedule a meeting to agree on a plan for our due diligence assessment, including, for example, meeting with some of your existing customers to validate your product. While we will be as expedient as possible in this due diligence process, this is an important step to ensure that we are stewarding our investors’ money to the best of our ability, so expect the due diligence process to take several months.
