Adam Fisher is widely regarded as one of the top investors in Israel with experience investing across the technology stack, from cutting edge hardware to consumer Internet.

Managing Bessemer’s Israel office since 2007, Adam has invested in more than 30 Israeli startups and several European startups, a third of which were pre-product at the time of his initial investment. With more than 21 M&A and IPO exits over his career, he has also been recognized as one of the top investors.

Born in South Africa, Adam was raised and educated in the US, where he studied at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
