9 Active Venture Capital Firms in Israel

Matt Preuss
Marketing Manager

At Visible, we oftentimes compare a venture fundraise to a traditional B2B sales and marketing funnel.

  • At the top of the funnel, you are finding potential investors via cold outreach and warm introductions.
  • In the middle of the funnel, you are nurturing potential investors with meetings, pitch decks, updates, and other communications.
  • At the bottom of the funnel, you are working through due diligence and hopefully closing new investors.

A strong sales and marketing funnel starts by identifying the right leads for your business. The same idea is true for founders looking to find investors for their business — find the right investors for your business.

[Webinar Registration] VC Fund Performance Metrics to Share When it’s ‘Early’ with Preface Ventures
It’s common for venture firms to start raising their next fund in the last year of capital deployment, typically years 3-4 of a fund’s life. This poses a sort of chicken-and-egg problem because many of the common fund performance metrics that Limited Partners use to drive allocation decisions only become reliable, and therefore more meaningful, around year six (Source: Cambridge Associates). Farooq Abbasi, founder and General Partner of Preface Ventures, created a Seed Stage Enterprise VC Funding Napkin to help GPS think through alternative fund metrics that help communicate performance outside the traditional indicators that LPs use to measure success for more mature funds. The Seed Stage Enterprise VC Funding Napkin is inspired by Christoph Janz’s Saas Funding Napkin which helps answer, “which KPI's indicate a company is in a good position to raise another round of funding in this environment?”. This version created by Preface Ventures answers the question for fund managers, “What needs to be true about a seed-stage fund to raise another fund”? Join us next Tuesday, February 27th for a discussion with Farooq Abbasi from Preface Ventures about the fund performance metrics GPs should share when their current fund is still 'early'.
