Building on the conviction that a sound economic base is one clear path to social and political stability, the Middle East Investment Initiative breaks from traditional aid models and designs innovative development finance initiatives that foster economic opportunities and dignity, not dependency.

MEII’s efforts, and others like it, will help create badly needed jobs, catalyze millions more in business investment, and contribute to a more stable and secure region, and world.
— Senator George Mitchell, Former U.S. Special Envoy for Middle East Peace & Senate Majority Leader

OUR MISSION

Founded with the conviction that the path to social and political stability in the MENA region requires a sound and sustainable economic base, the Middle East Investment Initiative (MEII) breaks from traditional aid models and designs innovative development finance initiatives that foster economic opportunities and dignity instead of dependency.

We identify sound businesses and entrepreneurs, provide them with targeted technical assistance, and facilitate access to finance so that they can achieve transformative growth.
