Cyber venture capital firm Cyberstarts has announced that it has appointed Hila Zigman as General Partner, expanding the firm’s investment team. Zigman will be driving early-stage venture deals as well as nurturing Cyberstarts’ cyber ventures and entrepreneurs. The appointment also solidifies its female-led leadership and its commitment to promoting diversity through action.
“I’m excited to embark on this new chapter with Cyberstarts, an ambitious venture capital firm that constantly surpasses industry benchmarks and redefines cybersecurity investing,” said Hila Zigman, General Partner at Cyberstarts. “During my time at Noname Security, the Cyberstarts team was my go-to resource, providing invaluable guidance as we navigated each phase of growth. I look forward to joining the team of cybersecurity titans at Cyberstarts, collaborating with the brightest minds in the industry to address the world’s most critical cyber threats.”
Before joining Cyberstarts, Zigman worked with its team as she took portfolio company Noname Security to a market-leader position as its CPO, leading the company's development and product teams and overseeing its Israeli headquarters. Before that, she served as a business partner for the research, development, and product teams at NSO.
“Hila’s unique experience, ranging from a focus on talent through building amazing market-leading products, is the perfect fit for Cyberstarts' own culture,” added Gili Raanan, Cyberstarts founder. “I’m especially proud to have added a former portfolio company executive to our team, and have our third female General Partner as part of the firm’s commitment to expanding diversity and equality in the tech industry.”
Cyberstarts was founded in 2018 and operates a seed line of business and nurtures cybersecurity entrepreneurs to help shape companies from product ideation to product-market fit.

Zigman’s appointment comes two months after the firm announced its Scale fund with $480 million committed capital to double down on the firm’s seed investments. It now has $663 million of assets under management (AUM) and a portfolio valued at $30 billion.
