Evergreen was established in 1987 by Jacob Burak as one of Israel’s first Venture Capital firms, and has grown into a leader, generating successful exits with tangible rewards for investors and entrepreneurs.
Evergreen’s current $650 million of venture capital funds under management invested in more than 120 technology companies represent one of the largest portfolios in Israel.
Evergreen’s investments are focused on early stage Israeli companies in three main fields: communications, software and healthcare. Their investments are positioned in different segments of each of these markets to comprise a well diversified and balanced portfolio of companies.
A professional investment team with extensive field expertise guides and supports entrepreneurs and portfolio companies throughout their life cycle, helping them to build a good idea into a leading company. With each member coming from a different background and contributing distinctive benefits, the investment team delivers a unique set of technical, operational and strategic skills.
Evergreen has established strong ties with technological markets, creating an eco-system, from which they extract knowledge, understanding of the market needs and at the same time creating a valuable network to support their portfolio companies.
Evergreen sees its entrepreneurs as a key asset and therefore invests in the relationship to build a true partnership. Consequently many of Israel’s successful serial entrepreneurs have approached Evergreen with their next venture.
Evergreen team’s disciplined investment strategy has been crystallized through more than 14 years of investment experience as a team and is one of the key elements responsible for Evergreen’s high rate of successful exits resulting in superior returns.
Evergreen is directed by deep values of shared responsibility, rich interaction and dialogue, and hard work - its guiding principles since inception. They strongly believe in the continuity of their corporate culture which emphasizes investment in human capital, disciplined processes, professionalism and true leadership.
