OurCrowd hit the news today in a big way, with news that it has raised $12M for its first class of startups and to fund its own operations.

This news was all about:

  • explaining how our hybrid angel/VC model is a better mousetrap for investors
  • quantifying the international interest in investing in the Start-up Nation
  • describing how OurCrowd’s investment platform helps address the Series A crunch
  • patting ourselves, our entrepreneurs, and our investors on the back for a job well-done (it’s been seriously hard and rewarding work)
