Stake said it will be utilizing the funds raised to propel the business as they enter the Kingdom this year, becoming the first platform to offer individuals outside of the Kingdom the opportunity to invest into Saudi real estate opportunities.

It noted that the Kingdom is a key market for both regional and international investors and presents vast growth opportunities for real estate fintech companies such as Stake.

The funds will also be allocated to expanding its fast-growing investor pool, bringing new investment opportunities on the platform and scaling a world-class team to build out its globally renowned, market leading product.

Its Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer Rami Tabbara, noted that the new funding will enable Stake to continue scaling its presence in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), while launching in Saudi Arabia.

“We are grateful to have a top-tier group of investors backing this funding round and placing significant trust in Stake and the future we are building,” he said.

“Having them onboard fortifies our commitment to expanding our product offerings and providing our investors with prime investment opportunities,

“We believe that the Real Estate investment process needs to be fully digitized and we have only started scratching the surface in our vision of making real estate accessible, transparent, borderless, and liquid,” he added.

Meanwhile, Stake Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer Manar said that Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is forecast to grow by 6 percent in 2025, making it one of the fastest growing G20 economies in the world.

“We want to give both our local and international users the opportunity to invest early and participate in that growth,

“This raise marks a significant moment in our journey, as we expand into this dynamic new market and partner with amazing new shareholders, including some of the strongest institutional and sovereign investors in the region, to advance our mission of empowering everyone to own and build wealth through real estate,” he added.

Stake is a digital real estate investment platform that enables anyone the ability to access unique, exclusive or premium investment opportunities from anywhere in the world.

Launched in 2021, the firm has built an international base of over 500,000 users from 205 nationalities and 160 countries.

It has been making headwinds in the Dubai real estate space over the past 3 years, amassing over 500,000 users, with its eyes now set on Saudi Arabia.

“We’re thrilled to be backing Stake in their Series A round. What they have achieved in the past 3 years is nothing short of incredible,

“Their approach to real estate investment is truly innovative and we believe that their talented team, combined with our strategic funding, will propel them to greater success in the region,” said Walid Mansour, Co-founder & Co-Chief Executive Officer of MEVP.

Fahad Alidi, Managing Director at Wa’ed Ventures, also said they are excited to support Stake as it expands into the Saudi market, allowing a broader range of investors to diversify their portfolios with high-potential rental properties.

“The team, led by Rami, Manar and Ricardo, continues to reshape the real estate market, democratizing access to an asset class traditionally reserved for high-net-worth individuals,” he added.

Since its launch in 2021, Stake has redefined the Dubai real estate market, allowing global investors to engage in fractional ownership with an entry point as low as AED 500 ($136.13).

With over 200 properties worth AED 355 million ($99.65 million) sold via its app and over 50 percent of their investors coming from outside of the UAE, the company is leading a wave of transformation within Middle East and North Africa (MENA)’s financial and real estate landscape.

In May 2024, Stake surpassed 100,000 transactions on the platform.

Further fueling its growth and expansion, Stake also recently announced a strategic partnership with Republic, a US-based unicorn investment platform to offer investors in the United States and United Kingdom unprecedented access to the booming real estate market in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Stake is regulated by the Capital Markets Authority in Saudi Arabia.
