For the third consecutive year, Israeli financial newspaper Calcalist put together a list of the top 50 startups in Israel (in Hebrew). VC Cafe took note, and now we bring you the full list of top 50 Israeli startups in English. The list was put together with the help of both Israeli and foreign VC funds, taking into account the startups’ current estimated valuation as well as potential for exit. The top 15 companies were selected for their “health” – they all make north of tens of millions in sales, employ a large number of people and measure themselves in business fundamentals rather than exit dreams. They aren’t all young and don’t all wish to be acquired quickly. Amongst the funds that participated in the ranking are Plenus, Benchmark, Norwest Ventures, GlobeSpan, Blumberg, Rhodium, Tamir Fishman DFJ, Vertex, Genesis, Battery, Carmel, The Time, Evergreen, Gemini and Cedar.
