Investment Strategy

Ibtikar is looking for motivated and skilled Palestinian entrepreneurs, from both Palestine and the MENA region. We are looking for tech or tech-enabled startups that are scalable and that serve a regional or global need.

We will evaluate companies based on the ability and vision to succeed, the scalability of the business models, and markets with high growth opportunities. We seek to invest in a diversified portfolio of companies, in terms of stage, target markets, and technologies to maximize profitability and mitigate risk.
