“The Abraham Accords have ushered in a new reality for Israel and the MENA Region. OurCrowd is very proud to have played a significant role in establishing the beginnings of new, fruitful partnerships for our portfolio companies, investors and partners in both Israel and Morocco,” said Jon Medved, CEO and Founder of OurCrowd. “We look forward to further growing this wonderful partnership and we expect to regularly welcome even larger Moroccan delegations in the near future.”

The Moroccan startup ecosystem has developed over the past several years, with many startups being supported by incubators, venture capital funds and government support organizations, all working to create rapid and significant traction for this important and valuable business sector.

OurCrowd Arabia Head of Business Development MENA Youssef Seffar commented, “Morocco has great potential as a gateway to Africa and Europe, and now when we add our strategic relationship with Israel, the sky is the limit.”

This year, the OurCrowd Summit is celebrating 10 years since the founding of OurCrowd. Since its founding, OurCrowd has secured more than $2.1B in investment commitments. The OurCrowd portfolio saw its 61st exit in January, with more expected in 2023.
