Amam Ventures is an impact fund that caters to companies that are committed to diversity & equal opportunities and those who put conscious efforts to create impact and positive change. By investing through a gender lens, we strive to make inclusion our key driving force forward in our quest to put more women towards the front in SMEs and startups. We invest across different sectors in tech-enabled businesses led by incredible founders that have identified an expansion opportunity and need risk capital to grow. In recognising the funding gap for companies that do not fit the conventional VC model and that fact that entrepreneurs need more than just capital to succeed, Amam Ventures extends financial support through quasi-equity instruments such as non-dilutive revenue-based financing as well as non-financial support through our Arcan Platform; a business development support program powered by Women in Business Arabia, designed based on the needs of Jordan’s SMEs in general and female entrepreneurs in particular.
