About

Valour Ventures is a Dubai-based venture capital firm focused on the high-growth markets of the Middle East and North Africa.

Led by a team of successful entrepreneurs and experienced corporate executives, we create value by deploying a range of acceleration programs to help start-up teams in achieving the full potential of their businesses.

We invest in entrepreneurs that want to make a lasting impact. We believe that success is possible through three main elements:

a great team + a strong idea + a market need

Get Started!

Investors


We present investors with original, niche start-ups to invest in at affordable entry levels with complementary registration at Venturer investor events. A nominal fee is taken only when a start-up’s funding goal is met.

Are you a person that:
  • Is looking for access to curated, bespoke investment options?
  • Is open to tech or brick and mortar ?
  • Has at least 20,000 AED to invest?
  • Wants to network and meet like-minded professionals ?

Support

We’ve built an ecosystem dedicated to empowering our entrepreneurs through:

Funding

We invest in seed and post-seed stage companies, and prepare our companies for future rounds of funding including banking facilities. Aligned for success, we are committed to our companies.

Networking

Dubbed “Valour Partners”, our network is made up of mentors and investors with senior experience in a range of industries who can offer invaluable advice, connections, or funding.

Knowledge sharing

We organize and host workshops, trainings and roundtable discussions for entrepreneurs.

Holistic support

We have a dedicated team focused on design, engineering, development, recruitment, branding, strategy, market development, operations and client management.

Business development

By utilising our market network and introducing our entrepreneurs to strategic companies that support their growth, we can fast track your market penetration and client acquisition.

Office hosting

We want entrepreneurs to focus on what they do best. We invite our entrepreneurs to save time and finances by using our open workspace. Being located in the heart of the Dubai Internet City, our companies are a step away from the largest technology, internet, healthcare and education companies in the region and benefit from proximity to these potential partnerships and clientele.

Get Started!

Startups


We accelerate start-ups in the ‘sprout’ stage — after seed stage and before formal funding rounds

Are you a start-up that:
  • Has recently launched ?
  • Has some traction ?
  • Need support or financial investment ?
  • Is in sprout stage ?
  • Is interested in having mentors ?

Supporting Artists

We at Valour Ventures believe in supporting artistic talent both in the community and in the region. We have a spacious office that echoes the structure and composition of an art gallery, and we invite artists to apply to info@valourventures.com to use the space for 3 evenings at no cost. This allows for young and rising artists to gain visibility in Dubai, and invite their contacts to view their work in a private space without the fees and hassle of signing with an art gallery or agency. This is part of our commitment to social responsibility, and to the rapidly developing art space that is becoming part of Dubai’s culture. For questions, application, and further details please contact us via email.

Internship program

Valour Ventures offers select internship positions at our company, which offers a unique experience for students and recent graduates to work in a start-up hub that focuses on two unique aspects of business: advisory and venture capital. We provide value-added experience, and opportunities to expand knowledge in both fields. As a Valour intern, you will have the chance to work with sprout start-ups, seasoned investors, and established partners and advisors to help build and shape Dubai’s business sector. For more information, and to apply for an internship position, please send your CV and a cover letter to info@valourventures.com
