We’re excited to welcome a new member to the OurCrowd team — Michael Ben-Nun, who joins us as a Venture Partner!

Michael brings 35 years of experience providing technical, strategic, and operational leadership in the Israeli and US high-tech sectors, including various managerial positions.

Being an innovation and entrepreneur enthusiast, I am thrilled to join the OurCrowd team. I am excited to help expand the tech ecosystem with more talent, help the next wave of startups scale, and continue to democratize access to early stage investments.” ~ Michael Ben-Nun

Michael began his career as a developer of the first 32-bit processor at National Semiconductors. He was also a distinguished engineer at DEC, managing development groups of various VLSI devices in the area of storage and networking.

After several key positions with multi-national high-tech corporations, Michael joined P-cube, the leader of service control platform for Internet service providers, as a CTO and VP R&D. In 2004 Cisco acquired P-cube for over $200M, and Michael continued managing the development of the P-cube products as well as integrating them with leading Cisco’s networking solutions.

Michael was an angel investor in Cloudon, a leader in cloud based documentation management services, with 9 million registered users in 120 countries. By the end of 2014 Cloudon was acquired by Dropbox, and the Cloudon development center became its first subsidiary in Israel.

We wish Michael the best of luck and look forward to expanding the OurCrowd startup ecosystem together.
