In the News: Watch – how Israeli tech stays on top despite politics

Turn up your volume – this week we are sharing videos exploring different themes in Startup Nation success. First, in the Economist, I join other major Israeli players to examine the Israeli ‘entrepreneurial ethos’ and reasons for Israel’s startup drive and scale. Second, in my live CNN interview, I discuss how Israeli tech remains impervious to political instability, plus a look at the tech IPO market and why some go nowhere while the likes of Beyond Meat are rewarded for real growth with sensible business models.  In other news, the “Fresh Start” Northern FoodTech incubator was officially launched by Finistere Ventures, OurCrowd, Tnuva and Tempo. We look forward to advancing tech along the entire chain of the food and beverage industry.

In the News: Who are Israel’s frontrunners for a major exit or IPO, according to Globes?

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.
