Israeli tech is in our DNA

Born in Israel and with decades of experience investing and building companies in NYC, we get the unique challenges Israeli founders face when building a global company, and know how to connect the dots to truly capitalize on the immense opportunities available to them.

It takes a village

Building a global company is extremely hard. We know it. With that in mind, we’ve built a powerful team of successful founders, top investors and proven operators from both Israel and NYC with one clear mission - become your go-to partner by doubling down on value creation and company building in the US market.
