Founded in 2013, iAngels operates as an equity crowdfunding platform that allows accredited investors from around the world to invest in Israeli startups. iAngels raised over $100 million in three years, investing in 50 companies. This year, a number of iAngels’ portfolio companies were acquired, including chatbot company Nanorep Inc., bought by Boston-based remote connectivity company LogMeIn for $45 million in August 2017, and Tel Aviv-based beverage consumption analytics startup WeissBeerger, bought by Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV in January.
In January, Calcalist reported that iAngles was in the process of raising a dedicated blockchain fund that has already invested $20 million. The fund is pursuing additional investors, targeting $100 million in commitments by the end of 2018. iAngles intends to invest in blockchain-related startups immediately before or through their ICO (initial coin offering), the company said.
