Our Team

Ibtikar’s strength stems from its dedicated management and advisory team, who works in partnership with each portfolio company to identify opportunities, mitigate risks, and address challenges throughout the duration of our investment.

Our expertise lies in supporting early-stage technology startups. As such, our team also plays a hands-on role in startup formation, from legal structures to governance, and we have established partnerships and streamlined this process for our portfolio. As companies grow, we mobilize our Fund’s strong regional and global network in their support.
