'The View from the Middle East':
LTC Breakfast with Noor Sweid
at Browns Hotel
20 May 2022
We were delighted to host a breakfast with our Club member Noor Sweid, Managing Partner of Global Ventures - a leading UAE-based venture capital firm. With $200 million AUM, and financial returns rating it as a top decile fund, Global Ventures has become a leading investor across the Middle East and Africa.
Noor is one of the most prominent venture capitalists in the MENA region, recognised by Forbes as the World’s Top 50 Women in Tech. She made headlines as the first woman to operate, scale and IPO a company in the MENA region, listing Depa on NASDAQ Dubai and the London Stock Exchange for US$1.1 billion in April 2008.
The discussion focused on investment opportunities in the region and strategies for catalysing growth and scaling companies.
