Israel has become a contender in the heavyweight ranks of VC investment in the past few years, with its startups raising over $2.7 billion since the beginning of 2012. Last year was a banner year for the country, as it came close to hitting the $1 billion capital invested mark (is there such a thing as a unicorn region?). Much of the venture capital invested has poured into Israel’s IT sector—which includes companies like Chakratec, Drippler and Map Labs(each have received funding in the past two weeks)—but other markets are grabbing their fair share of the investment, too. Healthcare has dipped slightly in its overall percentage of VC invested in Israel, but last year accounted for 21 rounds of funding worth $180 million. Israel-based B2B startups have already raised $220 million this year, nearly equaling the sector’s total in the past two years combined.
Here is a list of some of the most-funded VC-backed companies in Israel:
