With offices in Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv, in London, and in Silicon Valley, the venture firm manages around $300 million in assets.

Israel-based secondary venture capital firm Vintage Investments Partners committed funding to the new fund, as did he and Mr. Moshal, Mr. Eyal said.

The firm is adding two partners to its team: Ran Achituv, a former general partner at Israel-based Magma Venture Partners, and Eran Bielski. Mr. Bielski joined Entrée Capital in 2015, and co-founded SigmaLabs Accelerator, the firm’s startup accelerator in Tel Aviv.
