“IVP WAS FOUNDED TO SERVE THE CROSS BORDER WORLD OF ISRAELI RELATED TECHNOLOGY”
In today’s world, we find examples of Israeli entrepreneurship across multiple continents, with companies incubating in Israel Silicon Valley, and setting up and expanding in San Francisco, New York city, India, Singapore, and China. IVP was established by seasoned venture capitalists, as well as seasoned world class investment bankers to identify and support the earliest stage ventures and their teams. Ultimately, we believe that our mission is to identify the most promising and capable entrepreneurs, and to do everything to support and enhance their growth.
WE DEPLOY CAPITAL EFFICIENTLY
One of our greatest successes to date, a 300 person $80 mm revenue company was started with only $4 million. We believe that we can make big things happen by taking larger risks at an earlier stage; deploying capital efficiently and in a measured way, and assisting entrepreneurs to achieve milestones in order to maximize valuation growth before further capital rounds are added.
WE TARGET MEANINGFUL OWNERSHIP POSITIONS
We are focused on what we see as the most promising stage of entrepreneurial creativity and return potential: seed and Series A. Our investment capital funds are small enough to invest at these levels, but big enough to support our companies throughout their entire lifecycle. We like to be the first institutional investor in our companies, and we target initial investments of $500,000 to $ 2 million. As a result, we are often the largest outside shareholder in the company until exit. Consequently, our typical portfolio investment has ranged from $1 million to $2 million, and our typical equity ownership ranges from 7.5% to 20%.
OUR BUSINESS IS BASED ON MUTUAL RESPECT AND TRUST
We put the full weight of our resources, advisors and team behind our companies. We’re in it for the long haul.
