Bessemer has been investing in Israel for over three decades and has been continuously expanding its activity in Israel since 2007, when it first opened a local office. With more than $1 billion invested in Israel over the last decade, we have had the privilege of being the first venture investor in iconic Israeli companies such as Axonius, Fiverr, Habana, Hibob, Intucell, Melio, Wix, and others.
Our local Tel Aviv team leads early stage investments in Israel and collaborates, where relevant, with Bessemer investors globally.
Bessemer has partnered with more than 50 Israeli startups across a diverse range of sectors, including application SaaS, infrastructure, consumer, gaming, marketplaces, fintech, cyber security, networking, and semiconductors.
Some of our largest investments in Israeli companies started as some of our smallest seed investments, and that’s by design (read our seed memos of Wix and Fiverr). We back audacious entrepreneurs and their teams as they bring their ideas to life, by providing them the advantages of Bessemer’s local-global footprint, network, and versatility to support them from inception to IPO.
