Sidar Global Ventures grows technology start-ups to provide value and transformative change to a range of industries. As a team of technology, business, and policy experts, we offer seed-stage capital, a strategic relationship network, and a decade of experience navigating complex political and regulatory terrains to help companies reach their global potential.
Between 2009 and 2017, Sidar Global served clients in an advisory capacity on the economic, security, political and regulatory risks of doing business in austere environments. Led by CEO Cenk Sidar, the firm provided political risk analysis, market-entry strategy and commercial intelligence in the EMEA region to high-growth companies with overseas operations and investments. These companies included Microsoft, Kinross Gold Corporation, Statoil, Merck and Hilton Worldwide.
New technologies and their impact on shifting market dynamics has caused us to refocus our core operations to assist in intelligence gathering and analysis through scale-able technology platforms. This refocusing allowed Sidar Global to expand its functions to help clients further unlock the benefits of technological progression. Our offerings allow clients to capture and assess information in real-time across a variety of sector and risk areas.
Our extensive experience in risk assessment and analysis allows us to leverage our economic and regulatory expertise to identify and cultivate innovative platforms and technologies focused on the service sector - primarily financial services, education, B2B and marketing technology. Our portfolio consists of companies that make intelligence operational while forging relationships to drive business growth and success.
