“I’ve been a part of the regional ecosystem since 2008, and it’s come a long way since then,” said Amir Farha, founder and GP of COTU Ventures. “Saudi Arabia has opened up internationally, and governments have been driving policies and investment to activate the technology sectors of their local economies. We have a young and growing population of tech-savvy, digitally connected consumers with substantial spending power. When you combine all of this with remarkably low customer acquisition costs and some of the highest revenues per user, there has never been a better and more profitable time to invest in the region than today.”

“Our partnership with COTU Ventures has been a cornerstone of Sirdab’s journey,” said Naif Alzahri, co-founder of Sirdab. “Amir and the entire COTU team have contributed a wide array of expertise that has significantly enhanced our strategic, technical, and operational frameworks. Their unique approach to collaboration is rare to find, and it has cultivated an environment where one feels comfortable sharing insights and challenges that are typically only discussed within the confines of a founding team. This foundation of trust and mutual understanding not only highlights the extraordinary nature of our relationship with COTU but also makes us eternally grateful for their support.”
