Interesting question! I'm very familiar with the VC ecosystem in the UAE / MENA region, not too much with the PE space, but I'll try to take a stab.

The thing about the VC ecosystem in the UAE/MENA is that it is very early stage. Even "later-stage" VCs like BECO, MEVP, Global Ventures and STV only invest in Series A/B funding rounds most of the time, which is nowhere near PE level in terms of deal size/structure. Hence, I think that there will be little overlap between VC and PE and I would encourage you to try and find something in PE if that's your final goal.

Again, I am no expert on the PE space, so take this with a grain of salt. Feel free to DM me as well if you have any questions.
