83North has closed it’s fifth fund at $300 million to invest in best and brightest consumer and enterprise technology companies led by aspiring European and Israeli entrepreneurs.
Headquartered in London and Tel Aviv, the five-strong 83North team has worked with the region’s most ambitious founders to create market-leading technology businesses. Laurel Bowden, Arnon Dinur, Gil Goren, Erez Ofer and Yoram Snir have backed more than 70 companies including Aeroscout (acquired by Stanley Black & Decker), Bluevine, Celonis, Ebury, Hybris (acquired by SAP), IronSource, iZettle (acquired by Paypal), Just Eat, Logz.io, Marqeta, Mirakl, ScaleIO (acquired by EMC), SocialPoint (acquired by Take-Two Interactive), Vast Data, Via, Wolt and Zerto.
The new capital demonstrates the on-going appeal of the firm’s unique model: providing a breadth of expertise and on-the-ground support in three strategic regions – Europe, Israel and the United States. 83North has an unrivalled ability to help founders successfully scale their businesses across these three markets.
“We remain focused on several core domains of expertise” said Gil Goren, Partner at 83North in Tel Aviv. “Data Center and Cloud, Enterprise software, Marketplaces and Fintech are areas where we have developed world class expertise and invested in clusters of leading companies. We are also fortunate to back exceptional entrepreneurs in new and emerging areas such as IOT (with recent investments in Wiliot and VDOO) and have a growing interest in the intersection of IT and healthcare as well as vertical SaaS applications.”
