Badia Impact Fund is a venture capital fund that invests in and develops long-term partnerships with early-stage Jordanian technology and knowledge-based companies that are developing innovative solutions to local, regional, and global challenges. The Fund has currently obtained the commitments of Cisco Systems, European Investment Bank (EIB), as well as our parent company, Accelerator Technology Holdings. In collaboration with diverse partners from local, regional, and global technology ecosystems, Badia Impact Fund provides Jordanian technology ventures with growth capital in the range of US$200,000 to US$3MM. The Fund is uniquely structured to allow these ventures to succeed on a global level, with emphasis placed on exporting and exposing Jordanian innovation, talent, and ideas to the global marketplace. In targeting global relevance, we believe we are building on Jordan's existing achievements in creating a unique brand for technology entrepreneurship, which has become the benchmark for excellence in our region. Through enabling further success stories from our country, Badia Impact Fund aims to more definitively put Jordan's technology sector on the global map.
