Israeli Firms Raise Record $2.74B First Quarter of 2020 Despite CVID-19 Crisis
Israeli companies and startups managed to raise a record $2.74 billion in 139 deals during the first quarter of 2020 despite the coronavirus crisis which has jolted the world’s economy.
The impact of the pandemic was felt towards the closing of the quarter in the months of February and March, and will more than likely mean a second quarter that is “significantly lower than what we have become accustomed to in the past few years,” according to a joint IVC and ZAG S&W statement.
Early-stage companies were the first to suffer from the COVID-19 crisis. Seed financing rounds showed a “drastic decrease” to 24 deals, compared with the quarterly averages of 32 seed rounds in the years since 2013.
“Indeed, when it rains, everyone gets wet – even the best. It is clear by now that the high-tech industry, along with others, will not manage to avoid the effects of the coronavirus,” said Shmulik Zysman, founding partner of ZAG-S&W.
