OurCrowd is celebrating 5 years this month. It has been an exciting journey; from an idea scribbled on a napkin to a leading international equity crowdfunding platform. We have been privileged to add 145 promising companies from every sector to our portfolio, to have brought $650M in commitments, to have opened offices all over the world, and connected more investors than ever to the exciting world of startup investing.
This year alone, we have reached some incredible milestones. We have taken our goal to become the bridge between Israel and Asia seriously, and \ raised 50% of capital from Asia in 2017, invested in several Asian startups, and hosted hundreds of visitors from China in our headquarters. We furthered our commitment to bringing funds to our investors, offering 12 funds ranging from AI to digital health. We increased our ecosystem footprint, connecting with 120+ multinational partners, and making 600+ business connections for our portfolio companies. Check out the cool infographic below. Cheers to another incredible half decade!
