We have some basic filters that we use to gauge startups. Below are what we look for in a startup
Notice the word “team.” Creating a solo startup can be awfully lonely. We invest in teams, it’s our most important criteria
We like to see a tough problem presented—and then your solutions to address it. If you choose to go the entrepreneurial route, make sure you are trying to solve at least one hard problem. Hard is good; hard is interesting.
We love seeing a transaction where you are earning revenue selling a product or providing a service. This makes us bigger fans of eCommerce, for instance, than gaming startups.
FIRST MONEY IN
We want to be right there investing in you after you have your three F’s (friends, family, and founders). We are a pre seed fund and we want to stay that way. We want to be the first institutional capital that you raise.
DON’T OUTSOURCE YOUR CORE
We don’t want to see just an idea, where your core is outsourced. Your team has to have the Doers and the Sellers, the Doer being a technical co-founder
WE LIKE TO LEAD
“Nama” in Arabic is derived from the word meaning “to grow”, and we can’t help you grow if we are taking a backseat and watching others grow around you! We want to be there helping you grow from a seed to a forest, rolling up our sleeves and pruning you to realize and reach your full growth potential.
The entrepreneurial journey is an emotional rollercoaster, some days you’ll feel you are on top of the world, other days you’ll feel underground. Only passion will carry you thought these times and give you the needed push to persevere.
If you are not willing to lend a helping hand along your entrepreneurial journey then you are in the wrong profession. Entrepreneurship is a team sport, there is no place in it for arrogance and meanness. you have to be willing to always learn and always teach.
We are decisive, hard-working and thesis-driven investors. We seek out extraordinary business leaders who operate the same way.
We are a technology and software-focused investment firm.
We have a strong, team-based culture.
We fuel strong relationships based on support.
We hone our market perspective with sector-specific research.
