“The record funding in 2021 indicates that the growth in 2020 was not a short-term COVID-related boost, but reflects top investors’ increasing trust in the Israeli innovation ecosystem,” said Uri Gabai, the incoming CEO of Start-Up Nation Central’s new Research and Policy Institute.

Most of the funding has gone to cybersecurity, FinTech and Enterprise Solutions companies, making up 60 percent of all investment.
