FAQs

Wadiaa is an Omani Fintech company engaged in Crowd-funding/ Crowd-lending activities with focus on Equity and Loan-based funding for small and medium enterprises.

We enable promising startups to raise funds for growth by enabling them to run fundraising campaigns on the Wadiaa platform. We also enable investors from the general public, investment houses, Angel investors and VCs looking for investing in startups and SMEs to find promising startups, review their potential and invest in these fundraising campaigns amounts they can afford. Upon completing a successful funding campaign, we transfer the fund to the startup company.

Presently, we are offering equity crowdfunding. So, investors can invest in startups in return for shares in the startup.

We try to be selective in the type of companies fundraising on the Wadiaa platform. Although the industry sectors may vary, we aim to give investors a wide range of business sectors to invest in. Some of the more popular ones include e-Commerce, Fin-tech, Health-tech, F&B, services, among others. Please search for the sectors that you are most interested in.

The Wadiaa platform itself is regulated and built to ensure a safe and secure investment experience for our customers. However, investing in startups is high risk as startups have a higher failure rate than established companies. Hence, if the startups fail, you can lose all of your invested money. Also, there is no immediate secondary market to sell your shares. You only get your returns when the startup grows and gets acquired or issue an initial public offering (IPO). Hence, do your own due-diligence before investing and only invest amounts that you can afford to lose.
