Tipalti, a fintech business that creates and runs a global financial transfer network, laying off about 11% of its workforce, 123 people. This comes just 6 months after Tipalti was looking to expand its workforce.
Tipalti explained the cutbacks in a move saying that in spite of strong demand for their financial automation solutions and ending what they called their “best-ever quarter,” it was still forced to “adapt to the changing financial landscape and we are announcing a reorganization that includes laying off 11% of the company’s employees, alongside other cutbacks of company expenses. The meaning for our Israeli site is that we are parting with 9% of the local employees.”

Snappy, an Israeli startup that offers a new platform for gift giving, is laying off 100 employees, or roughly 30% of its workforce.
Snappy CEO Hani Goldstein told the company’s employees, “Over the past few years, Snappy experienced tremendous growth and benefited from multiple tailwinds. This led to accelerated investment as well as increased hiring in an effort to sustain that momentum. We built our strategic plans around expectations for continued growth and global expansion.”
But then she added, “Sadly, we are now part of an entirely different reality and Snappy is experiencing the impact of economic shifts and uncertainties that many other companies in the tech industry are experiencing. Unfortunately, we must make extremely painful choices in order to orient Snappy’s financial profile toward sustainable growth and profitability.”
Founded in 2015 by, Hani Goldstein and Dvir Cohen, Snappy calls itself an all-in-one enterprise gifting platform, “using the power of experience to delight and connect people around the world.” So it is kind of like Santa Clause, only it makes money from what it does.
