OurCrowd to Host Crowdfunding Convention in Israel Next Week


OurCrowd, an Israeli equity crowdfunding platform for accredited investors, will host a convention for 36 of its portfolio companies. Their leaders will meet with over 600 investors and executives from 17 different countries in what OurCrowd is calling the largest global gathering of its kind.

At the two-day OurCrowd Global Investor Summit, participants will meet with and hear from CEOs of OurCrowd’s portfolio companies, including startups such as Consumer Physics (SCiO scanner), BioCatch (behavioral authentication), BillGuard (crowd sourced anti-credit card fraud), BT9 (food chain security), and Highcon (digital packaging). Participants will also hear from top Israeli innovators and decision-makers, including Brig. Gen. (Res.) Dr. Daniel Gold (“Father of Israel’s Iron Dome”), Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat (early investor in Check Point – Israel’s premier cybersecurity success), Larry Jasinsky (CEO of ReWalk Robotics, OurCrowd’s first IPO) and Leonard Rosen (CEO at Barclays Capital Israel), among others.

OurCrowd CEO Jon Medved stated, “This global conference will be a transformative moment for equity crowdfunding and a significant achievement for OurCrowd. Historically, crowdfunding has been seen as impersonal and living in the “virtual world” alone; next week, we will bring this to life in a very “real world” way and personalize crowdfunding in a way that it has never been done before.”

Presenting companies will cover major investment sectors, including cybersecurity, medtech, agritech, Big Data, the Internet of Things, robotics and more.

On the second day of the summit, participants will have the opportunity to get exclusive up-close briefings and field tours, as OurCrowd investors break into 5 individual buses and hit the road to visit a variety of companies, educational and army facilities, as well as other sites to figure out what really makes the Startup Nation tick.

OurCrowd states that it selects opportunities, invests its own capital and brings startups to its accredited membership. Members choose those deals they invest in via OurCrowd-managed partnerships. OurCrowd investors must meet stringent accreditation criteria and invest a minimum of $10, 000 per deal.

OurCrowd provides post investment support to its portfolio companies, assigning industry experts as mentors and taking board seats. It has raised over $75 million in equity crowdfunding for its 53 portfolio companies.
