Excited to feature Vintage View 1Q 2021
2021 has started off strong with exciting announcements from our direct portfolio companies:
1 acquisition (MyHeritage), 1 company filing for an IPO (Similarweb) and 3 companies announcing plans to go public via SPACs (eToro, Otonomo and Payoneer). In total, our direct portfolio companies raised an incredible $915M in the first quarter (including Wolt, Cynet, Electric), minting 2 new unicorns (Earnix, Yotpo). Also, many of our indirect portfolio companies announced exits and large capital raises.
Further, our portfolio funds have raised over $4B to continue to invest in great founders and revolutionary companies (congrats to Bessemer, Boldstart, Primary, PSL, Singular and Starting Line).
Internally at Vintage, we have been growing rapidly with our investment team adding 3 new team members, Hamutal Meridor, Barrel Kfir, and Tzlil Kovetz, strengthening our team with invaluable experience and a proven track record in the Cybersecurity and AI space. We believe experience in these sectors is crucial to properly assess both funds and direct investments.
