Vision

We are an angel investment network connecting impact-driven individual investors with gifted entrepreneurs.
Our vision is to enable promising start-up enterprises that operate in high growth markets in Asia and Africa to realise their potential by providing seed capital and strategic advice.

Context

The Muslim world is undergoing a seismic and exciting transformation. A new generation of tech-savvy entrepreneurs in cities such as Cairo, Dubai, Lahore, and Jakarta, are creating ventures that seek to not only generate strong financial returns, but also solve pressing societal problems.

 

Establishing a business, especially in emerging markets, requires exceptional courage, discipline, and persistence. Entrepreneurs in the Muslim world, in particular, face a plethora of social and economic challenges – and have limited support systems to call upon for advice and assistance.

 

By far the biggest challenge is fundraising. Many start-ups are faced with the “chicken and egg” situation, whereby entrepreneurs require proof points to raise capital but require capital to achieve proof points. The Falcon Network was founded by a group of committed and visionary investors to tackle this growing problem.

How the Network Works

Our angels (or members) commit to investing a minimum of USD 50,000 within two years of joining the Falcon Network. We currently have 50 angel investors.

 

As well as partnering with reputable incubators within our target markets, the Falcon Network will also be open to proposals from start-ups that operate in our core geographies across Asia and Africa. The Network’s operating committee will vet and screen all start-ups to ensure the highest quality and the most innovative and impactful proposals are presented to our members.
