We are very excited about launching this Joint Venture and we believe this shows our ambitious plan of becoming the best global crowdfunding platform for investments.” says FundedByMe CEO and co-founder Daniel Daboczy.
FundedByMe Dubai will be headed by Samer Toukan and Marcus Berneström.

“The UAE has not only become a vibrant hub, but a leader pushing us into the future. Dubai especially has reached a level where It’s not only driving technology in the region, but in the world. To be invited in becoming a small part of this by assisting the start-up scene is an honour that we do not take lightly.” says Marcus Berneström, partner, FundedByMe Dubai.
