Our Raison D'etre
The buzz and interest surrounding Israel as a start-up ‘superpower’ has been continuously growing. Despite its small size, Israel stands at the forefront of technology and innovation, along with other leading countries in the field. With years of experience as entrepreneurs, investors, lawyers and market professionals, we learned that there is a significant shortage in the supply of investment capital for Israeli companies in their early stages. We also discovered that investing in the Israeli hi-tech industry is something that is exclusively accessible to a very small group, mainly comprised of Venture Capital funds, Incubators and a handful of Angels. By solving these two problems, we help the Israeli success stories numbers to grow. With ExitValley, more entrepreneurs manage to raise funds and realize their vision. At the same time, more investors gain access to these opportunities and are able to partake in the success. A few years ago, we decided to take up the gauntlet and gathered together the best brains in the industry to develop an inclusive solution that restores power to entrepreneurs and provides public investors with a world of opportunities. Today, we are the change, the one we meant to create.
