Village Capital



In the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), we are seeing some of the toughest challenges worldwide along with some of the most innovative entrepreneurs. We are not working on this alone. In the past few years, we have seen an increase in MENA-based investors supporting impact-focused entrepreneurs. Investors realize that doing good makes sense. But there’s a lot of work still to be done.
