Highlighting Israeli Q2 2011 Israeli VC Investments

Calibre One, an executive recruiting firm published an illustrated report of global VC investments in Q2 2011, highlighting the number and volume of deals in Israeli startups.

It’s worth calling out some of the startups, which are not only making headway through product innovation, but also through the backing of world-class funds and user adoption.

Happy to see a large number of consumer apps on the list, which was historically not the strongest side of Israeli high tech:

  • Taykey – backed by Sequoia, provides ad targeting solutions based on trend analysis in social media.
  • Soluto – the ‘anti frustration’ software that makes PCs work better on startup by eliminating un-necessary processes, nominated as one the top Israeli startups after winning techcrunch disrupt
  • Donanza – the freelancer jobs marketplace, operates like a “Kayak” finding freelancers the best gigs across sources
  • Gizmox – working with Microsoft on web application design software
  • GreenSQL –  open source database firewall software
  • Do@ – vertical search inside applications, on your tablet. Comes very handy from what I hear.
  • Clarizen – the SaaS project management software, is heavily backed and getting traction
  • Onavo – reduce mobile data costs through compression

Israel's dollar volume of deals is up almost 100% compared to the previous quarter
