Calcalist was first to publish that Israeli biotech startup 1E Therapeutics has raised $120 million in a seed fundraising round.

A deal of this size for an early-stage biotech company is exceedingly uncommon. 1E’s Seed funding is thought to be the largest of its kind for an Israeli startup in the field. Although little is known about 1E Therapeutics, it is thought to be involved in drug development.

Calcalist has also learned that serial entrepreneur Marius Nacht, one of Check Point’s co-founders and presently regarded as the most prominent Israeli investor engaged in the biotech and MedTech industries, is one of the company’s significant investors.
