A Look Back At 2019
As we enter 2020, it is a great opportunity to take a look back at some of last year's great highlights.
2019 has been an enormously busy year for us in terms of exits for our portfolio companies, and as we continue to build our world class team and advisory board.
We stayed true to the MizMaa differentiation in focusing effort and time in eastern markets, while not forgetting that the US represents a robust market for Israeli technologies.
During the past year we announced two portfolio company exits: Corephotonics (acquired by Samsung) and Protego Labs (acquired by Checkpoint). We were proud to be part of these two journeys and heartened to see acquisitions by key strategic names of our portfolio companies.
We welcomed Rick Kaplan, the worldwide Business Development Leader for IBM's Financial Services Unit, who has also served as GM of IBM Israel.
We also extend our warm welcome to Bodo Uebber, who served as CFO and Board Member of Daimler, and is now serving on the boards of Adidas, Bertelsmann and the Berlin Center of Corporate Governance (BCCG). Mr. Uebber is a unique expert to help us identify the next set of winners and scale mobility companies.
Finally, MizMaa participated in 4 portfolio company follow-on rounds (Anagog, Ment.io, Ottopia, and Orca.AI), and also led Investments in four new exciting portfolio companies, Autofleet, Bond, 8e14, and Ridge.
Our entrepreneurs continue to punch above their weight, make technological breakthroughs that vibrate through the global markets, and journey on with us through thick and thin.
We wish you a healthy and robust 2020!
The MizMaa team.
