Very excited to open this week with two OurCrowd portfolio companies being headlined as the next big thing: “Despite the slower progress towards self-driving cars, Hailo and Cortica (Cartica) are Israel’s frontrunners for a major exit or IPO, or to become unicorns.” With regard to Hailo, “the term ‘breakthrough’ is not a cliché, but a fact.” Read why here.
Additional kudos to automotive visual intelligence platform Cartica AI on the completion of its Series B investment round, which OurCrowd was proud to take part in alongside Continental, Toyota AI Ventures and BMW i Ventures. Further congrats to mobile app analytics startup and portfolio company Neura on its $16 million Series B raise.
This Wednesday our team is excited to go up to Israel’s north and celebrate the establishment of the Northern FoodTech Incubator, along with Tnuva, Tempo and Finistere Ventures, as we hold a ribbon cutting ceremony! Join us.
