UAE royalty explore Indian startups


BENGALURU: At the gathering of angel investors organized by LetsVenture in Bengaluru this week, one person stood out — for his royal status, the rather casual dressing and desire to stay out of the media limelight. Sheikh Mohammad Bin Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, the crown prince of Ras Al Khaimah, one of the seven emirates that make up the UAE.

Qasimi, who is normally seen in a keffiyeh and thawb/dishdasha in the UAE, was dressed in a T-shirt and long shorts on Thursday and a T-shirt and jeans on Friday. He could be seen engaging with a number of the participants. With some difficulty, TOI managed to ask him a couple of questions, to which he said he had not invested in any startup yet and would like to talk once he invested. He said he had found some interesting startups.
