Last Week's Cap Intro Summit in Dubai

Last Wednesday we hosted our Cap Intro Summit at Salotto by Chic Nonna in Dubai, sponsored by Gowling WLG. 

14 fund managers & founders from around the world who had spent months with the DXBP team preparing, came together in the DXB Lounge to meet with over 30 Gulf-based Family Offices, institutional investors & influencers.

We had the privilege of hearing the impressive entrepreneurial family story of our keynote speaker Zak Taher – COO of MultiBank io, part of the MultiBank Group which is the world’s number 1 online financial derivatives broker.

It was then time for the fund managers & founders to give a short introduction to the room, before the networking began in earnest. The allocators had all received podcasts that we had recorded with the promoting firms, as well as presentations, ahead of the Summit and it was now time to engage in person, for 1:1 meetings

Investors heard from a diverse array of strategies, including Natural Resources & Metals, European Real Estate, Small Cap Equities, Digital Assets, Private Credit, and Invoice Financing.

Many of the promoting firms secured follow-up meetings with investors on Thursday and Friday and the DXBP team remain in Dubai this week to gather feedback and discuss next steps with allocators.

There is no magic wand when it comes to raising capital from the Middle East. An authentic commitment to the region is required, along with persistence. Our Summits allow promoting firms to land their brand with a bang, with a large number of local institutional allocators. But as we have said many times in these weekly notes, it is post-event where the real work begins, and the DXBP team is on hand to help move soft commitments to written tickets.
