The Startup Nation

Why We Invest in Israel

Israel is called the Startup Nation because it is one of the world's most productive regions for startups.

Scores of investors, and hundreds of multinationals like Microsoft, Google, Intel, Samsung, Apple, and Cisco, flock to Israel in search of hi-tech investment opportunities, partnerships, and solutions.

The Numbers Speak for Themselves.

Over the past decade, Israel was second only to the US in total exit value. And that’s from a country only slightly larger than the U.S. 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 1/3 of the total amount.
