Big announcement! After months of planning and presenting, we are proud to share that Tnuva, OurCrowd, Finistere Ventures, and Tempo Beverages have together been chosen by the Israel Innovation Authority to operate the new FoodTech incubator in the north of Israel! We are excited to be part of this initiative to establish Israel as a world leader in the FoodTech arena. In other news, OurCrowd is partnering with NOAH Advisors to promote startup investments in Europe. Congratulations to our Toronto-based portfolio company Wave, acquired by one of the world’s largest tax preparation companies, H&R Block; big win for Canadian tech.
