Israel’s Startup Environment

As the COVID pandemic raged around the world in 2020, online traffic and activity increased dramatically. Everyone was stuck at home, working from home, learning from home, and living life (almost exclusively) at home.

With this rapid uptick in online activity, one of Israel’s most well known industries, Cybersecurity, was poised to benefit substantially.

In 2020, the average Cybersecurity seed funding round in Israel increased to $5.2MM and the number of new startups in the industry raising funding stayed relatively consistent year over year at 64.

Several cyber companies raised massive rounds of funding including SentinelOne ($467MM), Snyk ($350MM), and CATO ($207MM).
