Most promising Israeli startups: 5 enterprise software companies to watch in 2024

Trullion, Frontegg, Volumez, Bridgewise, and Port were the highest-ranked enterprise software companies in this year's list of the 50 most promising Israeli startups

Last month Calcalist published its annual list of the Top 50 Most Promising Israeli Startups. One sector that showed continued potential was enterprise software. Here, we break down some of the most significant companies on the list.
Sector: Enterprise Software | Established: 2019 | Founders: Isaac Heller and Amir Boldo | Employees: 85, in Israel and the United States | Funding: $35 million from Aleph, Third Point Ventures, Greycroft, StepStone Group
Startup company Trullion, which operates in the seemingly boring field of automation solutions for the world of accounting, has become one of the hottest things in the Israeli high-tech scene. Its founder Isaac Heller went from being a strange bird to one of the most sought-after entrepreneurs in Israel. He hasn't even touched the $15 million he raised last year, but the local brass is already buzzing with rumors of another large fundraising that will be completed very soon. This is how it is when investors want to jump on the successful bandwagon that is racing not only in terms of promises but also in terms of income. Trullion already enjoys an annual revenue rate of more than $10 million and in the contracts already signed it has the potential for much higher numbers. Leading international accounting firms such as EY and Deloitte recommend Trulion's product to their clients and a few months ago it signed an agreement with one of the largest companies in the world, whose name cannot be disclosed at this stage.
Sector: Enterprise Software | Established: 2019 | Founders: Aviad Mizrachii and Sagi Rodin | Employees: 70, in Israel and the USA | Funding: $70 million from Insight Partners, Pitango, Stripes, I3, Matias Ventures, Global Founders Capital
The company with the somewhat strange name Frontegg was founded by two former Check Point employees, Aviad Mizrachi and Sagi Rodin. At Check Point, they encountered a problem - for each application they developed, they had to build from scratch and redefine the management of customer identities and user access. The two decided to build a platform that would save developers of SaaS solutions a large part of the headache that accompanies development and founded Frontegg. The decision to incorporate the word "egg" into the company's name stems from the fact that an egg symbolizes something new and also has a very strong shell from top to bottom. Since the establishment of the company, and with the proliferation of hacks resulting from the abuse of weaknesses in the field of identity management, the sector has only gotten stronger and has become one of the hottest in cyber.
Sector: Enterprise Software | Established: 2020 | Founders: Jonathan Amit | Employees: 11-50 | Funding: $32 million from Koch Disruptive Technologies, Pitango, and Viola Ventures

Port’s developer portal allows users to define their own data models of the software catalog and unify metadata that exists in silos all over the tech-stack, from CI/CD data, through vulnerabilities, alerts, incidents and more. Port allows platform engineering teams to create a portal that provides a product-like user experience for developers, abstracting away environments, cloud resources and DevOps processes. The portal features a comprehensive software catalog that categorizes all of a company’s resources by type so that all microservices, cloud resources, environments etc can be quickly located and searched. The complexity of modern cloud-based software and infrastructure has made routine developer and DevOps tasks confusing and cumbersome. Port aims to simplify these tasks by abstracting away environments, microservices, and DevOps processes.
