“It is not what they usually do. They don’t take calls from Dubai. And they don’t invest in Virginia,” says Ibrahim. “It is not a direct investment in Charlottesville, but it will employ professionals in the broader medical field.”
Joseph Duneier, a Silicon Valley veteran, will facilitate the investment and gain access to Hanif’s Hangman Capital connections in Dubai. “With Expo2020 opening later in the year, Dubai provides lucrative service-based investment opportunities. It’s a mutually beneficial exchange,” explains Duneier.
Ibrahim’s advisory has worked with entrepreneurs in Virginia. A research report, compiled by Access Advisory during this period, reveals unique insights into Charlottesville demographics. Hanif cites these insights to make a case for medical tech start-ups to invest in the city.
“If you take a look at the employment statistics. If you see who employs the most people and in which positions. Inclinations of the city’s human resources become evident,” clarifies Hanif.
