OurCrowd is an investment platform built for accredited investors and institutions to invest in startups and venture funds. Based in Jerusalem, the company launched in February 2013, with overseas branches in the United States, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Unlike crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo which crowdfund donations to projects typically in return for some type of reward or gift, OurCrowd uses equity crowdfunding as its model. In equity crowdfunding, investments into a company’s shares are pooled together from the crowd. Although recent regulatory changes make crowdfunding available to all investors, at this point, OurCrowd is only available to accredited investors. OurCrowd requires its Israeli portfolio companies to donate a portion of their equity to charity as part of the closing of any funding round.

Pitchbook has rated OurCrowd “Israel’s most active VC fund.” OurCrowd invests its capital in all the companies and venture funds offered on its platform, and extends the opportunity to invest to its accredited membership on the same terms.
