Chinese VC to invest $500m in Israel in 2015

Chinese investors continue to show growing interest in Israeli high tech. According to IVC Research Center, Chinese investors will invest an estimated half a billion dollars in Israeli venture capital in 2015. IVC held a conference yesterday where it revealed the data and publicized another estimate, according to which Israeli funds will raise between $1.2 billion and $1.5 billion by the end of this year. In addition, the company believes that half of the funds that raise money by the end of the year will have at least one Chinese investor.

IVC examined the data on venture capital in Israel and the US, which grew 30% - 50% between 2013 and 2014. In China, by contrast, venture capital increased by 300% in a single year. Since 2012, more than 30 entities from China and Hong Kong invested in Israel that had not previously done so. The number of Chinese investors is growing, according to the data, at the impressive annual rate of 50%. China’s venture capital industry totaled $15.5 billion in 2014, compared with $48 billion in the US, and $3.4 billion in Israel.

Israel-China investment fund Synergy China Fund managing partner David Fuchs, who participated in the conference, said: “The money flowing in is just the tip of the iceberg; there are many more good investors and strategic partners who are looking for interesting investments within China, and don’t reach Israel.”
