Description of the organization:

Cedrus Ventures is a venture capital and private equity (VCPE) firm whose primary focus is Lebanese companies. Lebanon is a country of thriving entrepreneurship, but with relatively little VCPE activity - a gap that creates opportunities.

Cedrus goes to great lengths to serve entrepreneurs by providing business, and in some cases technical, assistance.

It also goes to great lengths to serve investors by nurturing portfolio companies, as well as reducing and managing the risk inherent in a VCPE portfolio.

Furthermore, its management directly puts its own money where its recommendations are, co-investing with its investors.

Description of the financial services:

Equity Investments:  Cedrus Ventures provides capital funding in exchange for shares within the company.  

Description of other services:

Business assistance and coaching. In some cases technical assistance and coaching.
