Justin Borus, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Ibex Investors, said, “Doubling down on Israel underscores our commitment to the Israeli ecosystem as a leading market for technology. Despite the ongoing war and challenging global macroeconomics, our LPs recognize the opportunity to make outsized returns precisely from opportunities such as these. Most of the world’s greatest innovations come as a direct result of war and conflict and we believe this time will be no different.”

Nicole Priel, Partner at Ibex Investors, shared: “Why Israel? Why now? The answers couldn’t be any more clear. We firmly believe that the Israeli tech entrepreneur possesses an innate sense of drive, creativity, and perseverance required to turn ideas into reality. We maintain our conviction that this is an opportune time to be building ventures and are committed to partnering with ambitious entrepreneurs from inception as they build the leading companies of tomorrow.”

The Ibex team in Israel is led by Nicole Priel who focuses on early-stage investments, and Gal Gitter, Partner, who focuses on growth stage and secondary investments. With the recent addition of Aaron Rinberg, Partner, and Alon Cinamon, Associate, the Israel office has grown to 7 people.
