IVC Giza
NOV.30.2017 | Highlights of the Israeli high-tech, venture capital, startups and private equity industry
Research Highlights
A glance at the Israeli automotive ecosystem
The acquisition of Israeli automotive (security) company Argus Cyber Security by Germany’s Continental AG for $430 million in November, the $15.3 billion acquisition of Mobileye by Intel for $15.3 billion, and three other Israeli startups in this sector since the beginning of 2017 have prompted IVC to take an in-depth look at the emerging Israeli automotive startup activity.
The Israeli IPO Pipeline: 24 companies are ripe
IPOs are the jewel in the crown of exits. By offering shares to the public, entrepreneurs and the investors get to touch the liquidity base, on the one hand. Companies get to demonstrate their assets and accelerate their growth, on the other hand. The public markets, though, have their own mood swings and do not always welcome tech IPOs. The public markets’ tastes can be unexpected and keep changing, though 2017 looks like a good year for tech IPOs
