Ibtikar’s strength stems from the dedicated management and advisory team, who works hand-in-hand with each portfolio company to identify opportunities, mitigate risks, and address challenges throughout the duration of our investment. Ibtikar’s management team is supported by a pool of investors, the majority of whom are Palestinian—from both within and outside Palestine—who support our investments with their varied and deep experience and networks.
