(JNS) Israeli startups raised $5.9 billion so far in 2019 and are on track to pass last year’s record-breaking figure of $6.4 billion, the Israeli business daily Globes reported.
Based on press releases from Israeli companies that have completed financing rounds, over $1 billion was raised in September alone, but the true figure is likely even higher as some companies do not reveal investment data, according to the report. Israeli tech companies raised $650 million in July and $350 million in August, according to the IVC Research Center.
In September, credit company Fundbox raised $326 million, fintech firm Tipalti raised $76 million and open security platform Snyk raised $70 million. In addition, drone defense company D-Fend raised $28 million and 3D printing company Xjet raised $45 million.
