General Partner - Egypt

Ever want to be one of the leaders of an entirely new economy? That’s what opportunity awaits you at Modus Capital. 


We are not only building a new type of incubator, accelerator, venture fund for tech startups in the Middle East - we are building sustainable economic markets throughout MENA.


The MENA market is one of the fastest growing market in the world and yet it is a market dominated by old-world politics and heavily undeveloped third-world problems.


By creating not only technology solutions to everyday problems - but economic companies that connect and work on a local and international level - we can change both the economic and social landscape in the region as well.


Our mission is much bigger than building a few successful $BN companies, we are elevating a region with frontier markets into cutting-edge economies via entrepreneurship and innovation.


So the only question is: why *wouldn't* you want to work at Modus Capital. Come build the next technology innovation economy with us in the MENA region.




We are seeking two country specific General Partners to join our team in Egypt.

The candidates we are looking for should be experienced serial entrepreneurs and/or startup investors in early to mid-stage ventures.

The GP’s will help run day-to-day operations of the fund, source and lead new investments, help mentor and manage venture partners, and assist in all aspects of fundraising.
