“A passion for Israel and 6,000 tech startups make a pretty good recipe for crowdfunding.
That’s what Jon Medved discovered when he founded OurCrowd, an online platform that connects mostly Israeli companies with investors around the world.
Jerusalem-based OurCrowd said it’s funneled $120 million in investments to 67 startups since 2013. That makes it one of the world’s fastest-growing firms in the fledgling universe of equity crowdfunding, according to Richard Swart, a resident scholar on the subject at the University of California at Berkeley.”
