Market Bridges Ltd was founded in 2002 as a Tel Aviv-based advisory firm, bridging Israeli technology and life science companies to foreign investors and partners.
The firm leverages its network of prestigious international partners, as well as the local network of Israeli start-ups, to provide investment banking services such as raising capital, M&A, IPO, as well as business development services such as distribution and strategic partnership deals.
Market Bridges provides foreign investors and vendors with a unique insight into the Israeli start-up environment. The firm follows and maintains relationships with technology and life science companies from early to late stage, and is involved in transactions from seed to IPO and M&A.
We track start-ups for years with the mission of identifying those with innovative technology and strong management and are on course to become market leaders in their sectors.
Finding the Fit
Our success depends on our ability to identify and form transactions that create win-win situations between Israeli start-ups and foreign investors.
We strive to find the right fit between the needs and criteria of the investors and vendors, and the needs and positioning of the Israeli start-ups.
With partners in North America, Europe and Asia, and a strong presence in Israel, in addition to our combined international experience, we are familiar with the different aspects of business culture and have the qualifications to tailor cross-border deals.
