Investment Strategy

Ibtikar invests in Palestinian entrepreneurs both from within Palestine and from the broader MENA region. We look for tech and tech-enabled startups that are scalable and that serve a MENA region or global need.

Our Startups

An e-commerce site selling bras, lingerie and shapewear to the MENA markets.
A global B2B platform empowering the growth of online retail businesses through Gamification, Customer Loyalty, and Business Intelligence solutions.
Providing people in MENA with on-demand access to gyms and fitness studios, without committing to long term memberships.

Are you an Entrepreneur?

We are looking for Palestinian entrepreneurs working with highly-skilled and complementary management teams. We are looking for ideas that are innovative and tech-enabled, have a regional or global market, and that answer real market needs. If you meet these criteria and are looking for early-stage funding, contact us.
