Meet the Investor: Faith Capital Holdings

ArabNet Team, Feb 12 2018

Today, the MENA region is witnessing a growth in the number of new funding institutions and is currently home to over 100 active institutional investors. At ArabNet, we decided to map out and profile the funding institutions in 9 of MENA’s key markets. You can find our map here, and our second profile on Kuwait-based Faith Capital Holdings below. 

Faith Capital is a Kuwait-based venture capital firm investing in young, e-commerce businesses in the GCC with high growth potential for the future and the potential to scale up and turn into regional enterprises. Faith Capital’s approach is to support and create further value in these companies through both funding as well as specialized local and international operational and management expertise, taking companies from the startup phase all the way through to a successful exit.
