Top 70 VC Funds and Angel Investors in Israel

Israel is a fairly young and small nation. Despite so, the Israeli startup ecosystem has nabbed itself the title of "The Startup Nation". With over 6,000 active startups, the country boasts the highest concentration of startups per capita, as well as an impressive number of unicorns (98) compared to other ecosystems such as the UK (47). Israel's ecosystem is dominated by pioneering innovation and strong entrepreneurship, which have placed them at the top of the startup ecosystem in the MENA region and within the top 10 worldwide. In this article, we have compiled a comprehensive list of the top VC Funds and Angel Investors in Israel for startups looking for funding in this thriving hub.

Here are some reasons why you should consider raising funds for your startup in Israel:


1. Stable Funding: Israel's venture capital market continues to flourish despite the overall slump in the global venture capital market in 2022. According to Dealroom, Tel Aviv raised a total of USD 6.9 billion in 2022, placing itself third for total investments raised in the EMEA region after London and Paris. Tel Aviv alone managed to attract USD 3.2 billion, ranking eighth worldwide for early-stage funding and sixth in the world for breakout stage rounds. Compared to other EMEA countries, Tel Aviv has showcased itself as a more resilient hub and an attractive destination for international investors. This is encouraged by the Israeli government's policy and funding support as well as incentive programs. For instance, the Investment Law provides reduced company tax rates and investment grants to foreign companies, the Yozma Programme offers a matching scheme to double any investments with public funds, and the Angel's Law offers tax benefits for single investors who funds seed-stage Israeli companies.


2. Startup Support Programs: There are over 30 startup incubator and accelerator programs available in Israel, along with other formal programs in place for Israeli startups by the Israel Innovation Authority (IIA). These incubators nurture startups from seed to later stages, offering funding, mentorship, and networking to de-risk, stabilize, and expand the company. In turn, many graduates of these programs are successful in attracting further investments from investors.


3. R&D Investments and Incentives: Israel is known for their pioneering technological innovations, attributed to their impressive R&D activity. Israel invests approximately 4.1% of its GDP into R&D activities, twice the OECD average and the second-highest R&D expenditure per capita worldwide. For instance, the IIA operates numerous R&D Fund programs which offer R&D grants for individual entrepreneurs, multinational companies, and NGOs. Some examples are the Innovation Labs program, which offers up to a 50% deduction in R&D expenses for specific sub-sectors, as well as other bi-national funds and joint R&D programs with foreign countries such as China, the USA, and Canada. The government also provides an incentive program of employment grants for R&D centers, resulting in over 300 multinational corporations establishing their R&D centers in Israel. Finally, the Intellectual Property Incentive offers reduced corporate, dividend, and capital gain tax rates to companies that create IP assets in Israel.





The venture capitalist funds below are actively looking for investments in promising companies throughout various stages and sectors. The stages stated do not limit the possibility of getting funding if your company is at any stage other than what is listed.
