Over the past few years, several MENA markets including Dubai, Egypt and Turkey as well as South Asian markets, including Bangladesh and Pakistan have seen very strong growth in inbound VC investments – driven by international investors. Many of these will likely find their way into developing regional stock exchanges in these markets. In this webinar, Henry tracks and presents these investments flows, which appear to be rapidly emerging throughout the regions.
