Welcome to our Israel Investment community

Equality, diversity, and the empowerment of women, championed by an immigrant nation smaller than the size of Wales. While neighbouring nations struggle to achieve democracy, Israel has triumphed, against all odds, to become a land that has given the world so much. All in under 60 years of existence!

Way before finally settling down to read a copy of the bestseller, Startup Nation, I was acutely aware of the how Israeli entrepreneurs were providing life-transforming solutions in pharma-tech and communication.

It wasn’t until I attended the Israeli Business Forum in Jerusalem in 2016 that I discovered first hand the culture of innovation, attributing to why so many multi-nationals are keen to either buy Israeli companies, or set up their entire Middle Eastern headquarters in Tel Aviv.

“In Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles” – Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion


..A group of Christian and Jewish businessmen and women, based in London, who empower each to seek out, and invest in economically viable, profit for purpose ventures across Israel.

In short, I hope this debut post introduces why our community came about, and our unique community offering.

One of our core beliefs is that Israel’s economic success is due to the tenacity of the people, and blessings on the people promised in Genesis 12. It’s our belief that regarding of your religion, denomination or background, that actively supporting the state of Israel, and all of its diverse ethnic communities, that you too will be blessed.

I’d read about Israel’s favorable macro-economic conditions from Western business media such as Forbes, and The Times, the $billion buy outs (exits). Deals that would win the early investors in these startups significant profit. However it was the business trip in 2016 that gave me the first-hand exposure to the technological innovation, and a deeper understanding of the technology from this land is saving life’s, and providing solutions to many of the worlds problems.

From the foreign retail investors market, it puzzled me that it only seemed to be American Jews and American Christian’s that were taking advantage of the opportunities to invest early in such startups.
