Special Feature

With Dr. Florence Eid-Oakden, Chief Economist

This month, we conducted our Special Feature dialogue with Fadi Ghandour, Executive Chairman at WAMDA Capital.

We share some highlights here:

  • More unicorns like Souq.com are expected to emerge as people become more involved, smartphone penetration rates remain high and international venture capital flows in.
  • Opportunities in the e-commerce space include potential in online marketplaces, and as an extension to that sector, advertisement, logistics and payment.
  • A sizable increase in the number of funds will enter the MENA market by 2020, once some large exits take place as the cycle of investment comes to maturity. increase in the number of funds will enter the MENA market by 2020, once some large exits take place as the cycle of investment comes to maturity.
