Our Philosophy

Outliers was founded on the principle that a venture's success is dependent on its founders. As such, we are in the business of investing in and supporting Outliers; strong executors building compounding technology companies at an early stage. We believe that even with a strong market opportunity, building a business is difficult and backing outliers early in their journey requires an operator-driven approach.

We are guided by three key principles

Being an ‘Outlier’ is a Process.

Great business models are built by exceptional founders and we seek to understand their unique insights. We ask questions like "why now and why this team" and "what are the unique insights this founder brings to the table?".

Data and Security are the Foundation of Digital Platforms.

With 30% of software running in the cloud and the emergence of edge computing, security and data are the two foundations of future digital platforms.

Technology is defining the future around the world.

Opportunities are being created around the world with the use of technology. We've witnessed the first wave of MENA-based founders driven by the emergence of digital channels. With recent reforms and structural changes, MENA markets are open to the next wave of disruption driven by deep tech.
