Benson Oak Ventures (BOV) has the mission to support entrepreneurs build transformative, global businesses by funding deals as a lead investor and providing significant value-add. Benson Oak has deployed capital across Europe, US and Israel in over 30 venture investments, with almost $500M in value for investors and a MOIC on venture deals of over 13x.
Based on Israel and focused on its vibrant ecosystem termed “Start-up Nation”, Benson Oak Ventures funds companies from early seed to Series A stages with focus on consumer and SMBTech, concentrating on EdTech, FinTech & Crypto and Leisure & Entertainment. The BOV model is predicated on focused deal flow and leverages a high-conviction, high-concentration model. We invest in companies with clear and sustainable business models, led by visionary Founders, who are focused on execution and making an impact in a fast-changing world, to help create transformative companies and engender great returns for investors.
The BOV team leverages deep understanding of the technology market for consumers and SMBs, including operational experience in building global brands and scaling business models. Managing Partner Robert Cohen was the driving force behind one of the most successful venture capital investments in consumer security – AVG (NYSE) – helping it become the global leader in Internet Security.
We believe the global economy will be permanently altered by the current situation as priorities change and new markets will be created as micro and macro trends emerge and accelerate. Our current batch of strong portfolio companies are well positioned to be winners from these permanent market changes.
