Startups from the Startup Nation

Why We Invest in the Startup Nation

Israel is one of the most productive regions worldwide for startups. But don’t take our word for it! Large numbers of investors and hundreds of successful multinationals like Microsoft, Google, Intel, Samsung, Apple, and Cisco (to name a few), flock to Israeli hi-tech in search of investment opportunities, partnerships, and solutions.

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.
