Startups from the Startup Nation

Why We Invest in the Startup Nation

Israel is probably the most fertile ground for startups in the world and you don’t have to take our word for it. Droves of investors and hundreds of successful multinationals – like Microsoft, Google, Intel, Samsung, Apple, Cisco, to name but a few – flock to the “startup nation” in search of investment opportunities, partners, and solutions to worldwide issues.

The Numbers Speak for Themselves.

Over the past decade, Israel has been second only to the US in terms of its total exit value, and that’s from a country that is just barely bigger than the US State of New Jersey.

In 2020, Israeli companies made 128 funding deals with a total of $6.96B on the capital markets, compared to $1.95B in 2019. Deals included IPOs, follow-on offerings, PIPEs and registered direct deals (RDs), covering equity and debt (straight and convertible) through primary and secondary offerings. Mega Deals (over $100m) have become common in 2020, making up nearly one-third of the total amount.

There are more than 8,300 active startups in Israel. Supporting this outpouring of energy and talent, Israel has 360 venture capital funds and 356 startup accelerators and incubators at last count. Israeli startups are addressing pressing worldwide problems in fields as diverse as medical, engineering, agriculture, food tech and fintech, with new solutions cropping up every day. Eighty Israeli companies have been launched in 2020 alone to work on solutions to COVID-19-related issues. That’s the largest group of COVID-19-relevant companies from any one country in the world.

Whether the huge number of successful Israeli startups is due to an altruistic sense of wanting to help the world, the high number of hardened migrants who are accustomed to surviving and thriving wherever they are, or the compulsory military service that makes everyone a can-do person, we may never know for sure.
