Stake’s funding round, led by MEVP, included participation from Wa’ed Ventures, Mubadala, and Al Jomaih Holding

Stake, the leading digital platform for real estate investment, today announced that they have raised $14 million in funding led by MEVP (Middle East Venture Partners), along with Aramco’s Wa’ed Ventures, one of Saudi Arabia’s largest VCs, Mubadala Investment Company (Abu Dhabi’s Sovereign Investor), Al Jomaih Holding (one of Saudi Arabia’s largest family conglomerates), and Republic, a leading US-based private investing platform.

Stake has been making headwinds in the Dubai real estate space over the past three years, amassing over 500,000 users, with its eyes now set on Saudi Arabia. Stake will utilise 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. The Kingdom is a crucial market for 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 to the platform, and scaling a world-class team to build out its globally renowned, market-leading product.

Co-founder & Co-CEO of Stake, Rami Tabbara, noted how the new funding will enable Stake to continue scaling its presence in the 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. 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 digitised, and we have only started scratching the surface of our vision of making real estate accessible, transparent, borderless, and liquid.”

Co-founder & Co-CEO of Stake, Manar Mahmassani, said: “KSA is forecast to grow by 6% in 2025, making it one of the fastest growing G20 economies in the world. We want our local and international users 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 region’s strongest institutional and sovereign investors, to advance our mission of empowering everyone to own and build wealth through real estate.”

Walid Mansour of MEVP, said: “We’re thrilled to be backing Stake in their Series A round. What they have achieved in the past three years is 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.”

Fahad Alidi, Managing Director at Wa’ed Ventures, said: “We 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, democratising access to an asset class traditionally reserved for high-net-worth individuals.”

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. With over 200 properties worth AED 355M sold via its app and over 50% of its investors coming from outside of the UAE, the company is transforming MENA’s financial and real estate landscape. In May 2024, Stake surpassed 100,000 transactions on the platform.
