OurCrowd’s New Partnership Promotes Startup Investment in Europe

Equity crowdfunding platform OurCrowd formed a partnership this week with NOAH Advisors to boost investment for European startups.

NOAH Advisors, a European corporate finance boutique, will work alongside the Israel-based company as it expands its portfolio into European startups. The two will focus on Germany, Switzerland, and the U.K.

“Europe is practically next door, with many Israeli startups choosing to focus on this market,” said OurCrowd CEO Jon Medved. “There are amazing innovations being developed in Europe now, and now is the time to bring Israel and Europe closer, collaborating on new ideas and innovation finance.”

As a part of the agreement, NOAH Advisors’ clients, executives, and investors will gain access to OurCrowd’s investment opportunities.

Founded in 2013, OurCrowd’s crowdfunding platform allows its network of 33,000 individual investors to participate in startup investment opportunities alongside VCs and institutional co-investors at the same terms. The company prides itself on its curated deal selection process that requires a team of investment professionals to review thousands of companies, meet with selected management teams, and select opportunities to open to investors. Since opening its doors, the company has vetted over 10,000 companies.

At FinovateSpring 2016, the company debuted the OurCrowd mobile app. Since then, the company marked $1 billion in assets under management; a milestone OurCrowd reached last year. The company was recently featured in Forbes and was ranked by Pitchbook as the most active Israeli VC firm.
