Los Angeles, CA — Innovesta, a platform for optimizing investment decisions using objective, validated and trusted data has raised a total of $2.7M after the latest funding round led by top investors from both Israel and the USA.
Launched in 2017, the women-led company began after initial funding of a $500,000 grant from the Innovation Authority, funded by the Israeli government. The criteria for that investment was based on having solid intellectual property, which was the foundation Innovesta developed its technology around. From there, the company built an international team of industry leaders with experience working and accelerating Technology companies globally.
Innovesta Partners with Draper Venture Network Member, Goren Holm Ventures
With additional investments totalling $2.7M from investors like The BSeed Group, Hana Rado, Mobileye investors Yigal Tamir and other Industry leaders, the company started its expansion to the United States and attracted Draper Network members Goren Holm Ventures (GHV). Led by Alon Goren and Josef Holm, the Los Angeles-based Venture Capital firm included Innovesta in its portfolio after understanding both the solid leadership and sound intellectual property behind the team. GHV is a member of the Draper Venture Network, which is led by legendary investor, Tim Draper, who is known for picking early-stage companies like Twitter and Skype.
The CEO of Innovesta, Yali Harari, spoke about the importance of being a part of a portfolio like GHV that has connections to an influential investor like Tim Draper. Harari and Innovesta’s co-founder, Keren Kay, met GHV’s Goren and Holm three years ago at a crowdfunding event in Los Angeles. The meeting served as the foundation for what became an explosive partnership.
“Innovesta is offering a new way to look at private companies, enabling investors to Innodex™ their investment opportunities, and customize areas they want to deep dive into based on their experience, corporate strategy, and goals,” Harari said. “It’s an honor to have visionary investors such as Goren, Holm and of course Tim Draper recognizing our innovative platform and partnering with us on this journey,” she said.
The feeling was mutual, according to GHV co-founder, Alon Goren.
“Innovesta is a tremendous addition to our portfolio because it’s a navigational and investment management platform which provides insights that all investors can benefit from. There is a dearth of trust-worthy information on private companies- Innovesta not only fills this gap, it has created a market for itself.”
The VCs were particularly interested in the strong technical background that the team has, particularly the patented Innodex™.
