Unicorns and Soonicorns
More than 30% of the funding rounds are attributed to startups headquartered in Dubai, implying 87% of all funding rounds for UAE-based companies are for firms headquartered in the Emirate. What is more amazing though is that Dubai-based companies have raised nearly 60% of all MENA funding since 2012. Dubai is also home to the most unicorns in the region and aims to be home to 20 unicorns by 2031.
