“Although the U.S. has historically been the principal source of capital for Israeli startups and venture capital funds, European investors are increasingly acting as a strong alternative source of capital” Manuel Sussholz, co-founder and managing partner of Sweetwood Ventures, said in a statement.

 

Founded in 2011 and based in Tel Aviv, Sweetwood Capital is managed by Sussholz, Samuel Cohen Solal, and Amit Kurz.
