The founder of Transform VC, Mr Masri has built his fund to be a system that identifies and invests in technology entrepreneurs that may have been dismissed by early investors, with an “affinity” for putting its money toward founders with Middle Eastern roots. 

Transform VC has made $82 million worth of investments into 40 start-ups and $117m into 11 other funds. The aggregate value of the companies in its portfolio is $4 billion, with an internal rate of return, an estimate of profitability, of 45 per cent.
