Israeli fund manager, Liquidity Capital, has joined with Dubai boutique, Vault Investment, to launch a US$100 million debt investment fund.
The Dubai-based fund will target technology startups in the region looking for alternative sources of financing.
The joint venture follows the warming of relations between the UAE and Israel as a result of a recently signed peace agreement between the two countries.
According to Liquidity Partners chief executive and founder Ron Daniel, the fund will be a positive development in both the availability of non-dilutive growth capital in the region and for the fast distribution of tech products from the Middle East and globally.
“The new climate in the region brings a lot of potential to capture. Non-dilutive debt is an asset class now transforming successful companies into unicorns,” he added.
