Serving as a launchpad for entrepreneurs from throughout the region who are looking to start businesses, Al Masah Capital Limited (AMCL) has been at the forefront of honing start-up entrepreneurial skills in the region.

With the start-up trend showing no signs of abating, AMCL sees the technology industry, e-commerce and distribution as popular sectors for growth in the start-up ecosystem.

Adding up to the benefits, the UAE provides start-ups with a favourable regulatory framework, low taxes and government support.

Cashing on these, AMCL has been presenting start-ups with opportunities to raise capital from a myriad of venture capital firms, private equity firms, and angel investors. AMCL helps investors who are looking to invest in different sectors of the industries and advises them on their investments.

Fintech ecosystems have stimulated technological innovation, made financial markets and systems more efficient, and improved the overall customer experience. A consensus is emerging among governments and financial institutions that nurturing these ecosystems is important and beneficial for the region.

Believing strongly in the philosophy of bringing buyers closer to their sellers; AMCL, over the years has contributed towards the rise in terms of advising investors and aiding start-ups with finances.

Capitalising on the growing population in a tech-savvy generation; AMCL is open about encouraging digital technology based start-ups in the region.

AMCL’s contribution in the start-up healthcare segment is commendable. In fact Healthcare MENA Limited (HML) was founded in 2011 by AMCL.  Its vision for HML was to create a region-wide healthcare network through a buy-and-build strategy, acquiring profitable and non-capital intensive healthcare businesses and integrating them into a unified entity.

Realising that new business ideas and trend-making concepts cannot thrive in a vacuum; AMCL has been consciously channelling efforts to provide a flourishing ecosystem to start-ups with financial assistance as well as professional advice.
