It Tech Two to Tango
Traditional VC Firm Viola Meets Equity Crowdfunding Firm OurCrowd
Daniel Cohen, a partner at Israeli early-stage firm Viola Ventures, spoke on a panel with OurCrowd’s Jonathan Medved at CTech by Calcalist’s investors’ event It Tech Two to Tango
“New kinds of venture capital firms, anything that is innovative and different, attracts a certain kind of entrepreneur but not the top 10%,” Cohen said. “We are still a small part of the market, but we happen to be the most active investor in the country by far,” Medved replied. “We are not here to thwart anyone’s business model, we just want to allow a large number of people who have been frozen out of this to participate and it is a good thing for everyone,” he said.
