Algebra Ventures is the leading technology VC firm in Egypt. Our team has unique investment experience both locally and internationally, and has backed some of Egypt’s most successful technology startups.
We have seen technology transform our societies and impact how we communicate, decide and transact. We foresee technology being even more impactful in the future as a new generation of entrepreneurs build the market-leading companies of tomorrow.
With a $40M in initial funding, our VC fund is the largest in Egypt. We are supported by credible international investors including Egyptian American Enterprise Fund (EAEF), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Cisco Investments and International Finance Corporation (IFC).
We invest in technology startups that leverage innovation to transform large markets.
We seek high-growth companies, led by passionate and capable teams, that have a unique value proposition, and that can generate significant economic returns.
We look for entrepreneurial teams that possess vision and insight as well as the execution skills needed to build scalable companies.
We are focused primarily on Series A and Series B rounds in Egypt although we do not exclude investments in earlier-stage startups or in other parts of the MENA region.
We prefer to meet startups early on and get to know the team (or lend a helping hand) as the opportunity is shaping up.
We seek to be trusted partners for our entrepreneurs.
We provide capital, assist with strategy and operations, and help build star teams. We connect our startups with industry partners and regional / international investors to support growth and future exit.
We typically lead early investment rounds and support our companies all the way to exit. We structure our deals around alignment of incentives with entrepreneurs and other investors. We are active on the boards of companies we invest in and we understand that course corrections are part of a startup’s DNA. We are proud to have worked with exceptional entrepreneurs and to have shared with them unique learning experiences that are particularly relevant to our local operating environment.
