2022 VC Survey
Israeli AI startups to watch out for in 2023
As part of CTech's 2022 VC survey, we asked dozens of industry executives to name some startups they invested in over the past year. The following list highlights some of the notable AI startups suggested by their investors
It is cliche to suggest that data is the new oil, but the impact of AI cannot be understated. Global leaders like the US and China are in somewhat of an arms race as to who can develop the best systems, leaving countries like Israel in the middle. As tools like ChatGPT have shown us in recent months, the transformative nature of artificial intelligence will change our world in unknowable ways.
As part of the “2022 VC Survey” series we conducted last year to review 2022 and make predictions for 2023, we contacted dozens of the leading funds in Israel and asked them to name three startups that deserve attention in the coming year. Each VC manager was asked to present relatively new startups in their portfolio, or ones that operate a little under the radar, and explain why they decided to invest in these companies.
The list we compiled includes over 100 startups from various fields such as AI, Quantum Computing, Medtech, Fintech, Mobility, Cloud+Data, Cyber and more. Here is the list of startups that you should pay attention to in the field of AI:
