Qatar sees the need for angel investment

angel-investingQatar’s Ministry of Information and Communications Technology’s Digital Incubation Center (DIC) organised a training workshop on angel investment on April 22 as part of efforts to build the angel investment ecosystem in Qatar’s information and communication technology sector.

Two angel investment experts from the Silicon Valley of the US provided advice and shared their thoughts and insights at the workshop, which witnessed the emergence of the first Qatari angel investment network, specialised in technology start-ups investment.

The workshop agenda featured lectures and presentations from angel investment experts, and the audience included a group of Qatari businesspeople and investors, as well as start-up entrepreneurs incubated at the DIC. Lectures revolved around angel investment concept, angel capital, pre-money valuation, best practices, due diligence processes and how all that reflects on business start-ups.

Angel investing generally aims to build up a bridge between business community and promising start-up entrepreneurs to back them, fund their businesses and help them develop their projects with the aim of building a robust entrepreneurship ecosystem in Qatar.

Angel investing is still a novelty in Qatar and the Arab world and a lot of work is still needed to promote the concept among Qatari investors and business community. Three to four start-up companies run by promising Qatari youth pitched their investment opportunities to the audience at the end of the workshop.
