Israel is among the key tech markets globally. It ranks ninth (tied with the Netherlands) among the top countries in the number of tech exits in 2015 and has sprouted dozens of prominent startups and attracted global investors, as seen in our recent Periodic Table of Israel Tech.
As momentum increases in the “startup nation,” we used CB Insights data to highlight 11 early-stage Israeli tech companies to keep an eye on, all of them focused on business-to-business markets. These are companies that have all raised funding in October 2015 or later, but have not yet raised a Series B round.
We used CB Insights Mosaic algorithm, which tracks the health of private companies, to identify some early-stage companies in the seed and Series A stage with traction. (Mosaic has three components, which gauge a company’s health in terms of financing, industry category, and overall momentum.)
Startups here are addressing cybersecurity, digital health, IoT, and more.
Among the startups on our list is AppDome, a cybersecurity company that has raised roughly $22.6M to date, making it the most well-funded company on our list.
Two companies on this list — Cato Networks and mPrest — have raised $20M Series A rounds. Five companies are addressing issues in cybersecurity, while MedyMatch Technology is using data analytics and artificial intelligence to predict strokes.
