We are actively looking to invest in and partner with Israeli startups that are targeting the US market. Our Silicon Valley-based seed fund works with startups at all stages and domains; Some startups join us after raising over $1M and generating sales, while others only had an early prototype when we invested in them.

To date, our startups have raised over $100M in funding — including Honeybook ($32M)SentinelOne ($12M)Keywee ($9M) — and some were acquired by companies such as Google and Priceline. You can view this short video of a few of our founders talking about their venture.
