HAPPY NEW YEAR. (It’s only the second week of Jan, so it’s still ok to say it.)


We don’t like to release our Wrapped before the year ends because who knows what the last few days may bring…? And it turns out that the end of our December was just that busy – ahead of Beban’s airing of its first episode of Season 3, in which I took part. (Did you miss it? You can watch it over and over here for free).



What we at Arzan VC treasure most about our 2023 is the old and new faces we got to meet at events … and there were so many of them – you can tell by the amount of photos below! Our wish for 2024 is to continue doing so – while having a chance to witness the comeback of events in Palestine️


Let’s unwrap.



2023 Wrapped… by Arzan VC


This is how the ride began.



Hope 2024 is treating you well so far… see you on the ride!

TL;DR (too long; didn’t read)  
2023 allowed us to focus on housekeeping while continuing to add value to the portfolio (46 startups since our inception!). We made 2 follow-on investments and witnessed 1 acquisition (by our existing Fund II company). Take a ride on that roller-coaster above for moooore details 😛
