OurCrowd, a leading global equity crowdfunding platform, and three of its portfolio companies that have raised capital on the OurCrowd platform, have been recognized as the World’s Most Innovative Companies as part of the annual Fast Company list for 2018. The top ten companies in Israel include OurCrowd, Insightec, which treats tremors with guided ultrasound; Zebra Medical Vision, which provides lifesaving AI scans at $1 apiece; and Airobotics, a global leader in fully automated industrial drones.
“We are proud to be named among the top ten companies in Israel by Fast Company, alongside some of our top portfolio companies like Insightec, Zebra Medical Vision and Airobotics,” commented OurCrowd Founder and CEO Jon Medved. “We hope that we will continue to innovate and democratize investing and bring many more great companies to the world via our platform.”
The annual list is topped by big name, global brands such as Apple, Netflix, Square, Tencent and Amazon. The Most Innovative Companies includes 350 different firms in 36 different categories.
Fast Company says that OurCrowd;
” … provides new individual investors with the access normally allotted just to venture capitalists and institutional investors. With OurCrowd, new investors are able to view vetted startups that are ripe for investment, and then make financial decisions through the website’s online investment tools.”
OurCrowd is poised to become the largest investment crowdfunding platform in the world as it has set a goal of topping $1 billion in investment. OurCrowd is different from many other crowdfunding platforms as it invests in every single offering along with smaller investors – thus aligning interests, an important validation of the investment process.
The OurCrowd community currently consists of about 25,000 accredited investors from over 112 countries. As the most recent announcement, OurCrowd has raised over $650 million and invested in 145 portfolio companies and funds.
