Israeli digital health VC OTV raises new $170 million fund
"The Covid-19 pandemic elucidated the importance of digital products to the global healthcare ecosystem," said OTV General Partner Alejandro Weinstein
“OTV’s goal for the upcoming period is to harness our expertise in facilitating the growth of digital health companies, and identify the market leaders of tomorrow,” said Alejandro Weinstein, General Partner, OTV. “Digital health technology is increasingly important for strained healthcare systems seeking to provide accessible and affordable treatment, especially to traditionally under-served populations. The Covid-19 pandemic elucidated the importance of digital products to the global healthcare ecosystem, but industry pain points predated the current crisis and clear solutions will be needed in the years to come.”
OTV was founded in 2015 by General Partners Mayer Gniwisch, Amir Lahat, and Alejandro Weinstein. OTV also announced the appointment of Jose Antonio Urrutia Rivas as Head of Asia Pacific. He will manage OTV’s new Asia Pacific office, based in China. The new office will complement existing branches in New York, Tel Aviv and Montreal. In 2019, OTV purchased Israeli company META, which had previously raised significant funds, with the goal of resuscitating it.
