OurCrowd’s smart investor’s guide to successful startup investing

Disruption is the hallmark of a startup serious about success. In the last few decades, nearly every major global industry has undergone a renaissance thanks to at least one innovative entrepreneur’s vision to solve a problem. It turns out, venture capital investing is no exception to this phenomenon. Before OurCrowd and other equity crowdfunding platforms came along, only people willing to write big checks and those well-connected professionals could get access to competitive, vetted deals. Now, individual angel investors can access the same deal flow as top tier venture capital firms, giving them the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the next big thing. This new, broadened access, however, comes with responsibility.

OurCrowd launches the smart investor’s guide to investing in Israel

Israel stands for a lot of things in the global economy. In their book, Start-up Nation, authors Senor and Singer codified Israel’s startup ecosystem as one of the most vibrant — and profitable — in the world. This hasn’t been lost on investors. Over the past few years, as much of the world experienced massive bankruptcies and sluggishness of their economies in the wake of the subprime crisis in the U.S., Israel’s economy kept producing — generating returns on investment in the Israeli stock market, bond market, currency market, and of course, in private equity — ie., Israel’s startups. Israel’s startup ecosystem is one of the most exciting, dynamic opportunities to invest in, and OurCrowd has a great ringside seat for seeing what’s trending right now and finding what we believe may be the most interesting investment opportunities the Startup Nation has to offer. When reading Start-up Nation, many people interested in Israel’s investment climate often find that they don’t know how to actively get involved. Sitting abroad, it isn’t always clear how to tap into the excitement around the Startup Nation, how the markets work,...
