Keiretsu Forum mission: “Great Association with Quality Deal Flow”    

Keiretsu Forum was founded in 2000 in San Francisco, USA by Randy Williams and has since grown to comprise 53+ chapters around the world with 3,000+ members. It is the largest global private equity investment network of accredited angel investors, venture capitalists, and corporate/institutional investors. Since its inception, The Forum has facilitated the investment of over $1.1 billion in over 1100 businesses. The key objective of Keiretsu Forum is to reduce participant risk in the high-risk activity of Angel Investing.

Keiretsu MENA

Keiretsu Forum is launching in Q1/2023 in Middle East & North Africa, starting with Bahrain, UAE and quickly expanding to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the rest of GCC, then other countries - & welcomes interested members from across the Middle East, start-ups, corporates, family offices and investment funds.

Our objective is to connect local and international angel investors to local start-ups – as well as international start-ups, and to benefit from the business-friendly infrastructure provided by the governments in MENA.

Keiretsu MENA will also invite specialist firms (finance, law, tax, IT, etc.) to participate in events, in order to provide relevant services, consulting, and support the success of our investment community.

How does it work?

 In essence, it is an Eco-system where members collaborate with each other and with entrepreneurs for mutual benefit, utilising the help and expertise of financial advisors, experts, and lawyers as and when needed.
