From the Editor
We sure have been busy...
In case you missed it, we've been having a busy month at IVC. We published our end-of-year VC and high-tech industry capital raising reports, exposed our 2016 Exits-report in a very successful event with Meitar, and also published the Most Active Funds report with APM. And that’s all in one month, so I don’t blame you if you didn’t keep up with the news.
