- Angel Investors have seen 10 to 30 times returns within three years or less, which is far faster than the five to seven years for U.S. companies reported by CB Insights.
- Israeli startups were acquired at a faster pace than ever, with an average exit in 3.95 years, according to data collected by the Dow Jones VentureSource.
- In 2015, 96 Israeli high-tech and startup companies were sold for a total of $9.02 billion while eight more companies had IPOs. (Israel-based IVC Research Center)
