About OXen9

Why?

Israel has a solid track record of being an incubator of innovation that pioneers global industries and successful, highly valuable and profitable companies. Yet, in the start-up curve, most companies “get stuck” in the “death valley” between Seed and Round A. Those companies need a “capital bridge” in order to move on to the next milestone. 
However, in most cases, a capital bridge and a brilliant vision aren’t enough – in the end – it’s all about execution. 

What?

At Oxen9, we support visionary founders and offer them a bridge – both financially and strategically – towards scaling up. 
We identify companies with unique potential and breakthrough technologies, invest in them, and lead them hand-in-hand to the next stage. 

How?

We combine our expertise, strategy, and connections with hands-on experience that will ensure that our tech companies are expertly run. We identify weaknesses and advantages, analyze challenges and potential markets, and create a winning strategy.
