Investing in people

As a vertically agnostic firm with complimentary early and growth-stage strategies, our diverse network of founders spans sectors, from food & ag-tech to digital healthcare to fintech and more. Yet there’s something they all have in common: they’re solving the world’s biggest challenges and fearlessly reshaping their industries. Here’s how our dual investment strategy ensures their success.

Our Approach

Early-stage investment strategy

At the early stage, we’re singularly focused on partnering with Israeli founders wherever they are in the world, empowering them to expand into the U.S. market and beyond. We lead and co-lead early-stage investment opportunities from Seed to Series A, with initial investments ranging from $2-6M.

Unlocking success at the early stage takes more than writing checks. It takes a partner who lives and breathes entrepreneurship and who knows what it takes to rapidly gain market share in a fiercely competitive industry.

At Hanaco, we don’t just provide capital—we constantly seek to add value by providing access to the resources, industry connections, and infrastructure needed to scale.

Specializing in early-stage, pre-product market fit, our team is known for its high risk tolerance and hyper-accuracy in recognizing talent and potential. We invest in founders first, companies second, and remain involved throughout the full life cycle, from early-stages through exit.

Our Approach

Growth-stage investment strategy

Combining the signature fast-paced style and agility of a young firm and the seasoned knowledge and connections of an experienced team, we invest into growth-stage opportunities across the U.S. and Israel, from Series C through pre-IPO, with initial check-size ranging from $15-20M.

Our collaborative mentality, investment flexibility, and no-ego approach mean that we don’t compete with other VC firms—instead, we collaborate with leading global firms, co-leading, following, and even creating new investment structures (such as convertible notes).

In fact, we’ve partnered with nearly every leading investment firm globally, many across multiple stages of a company lifecycle.

Our deep track record of investing in leading US and Israel based startups has resulted in a robust and growing founder network and an international firm culture with broad industry expertise across sectors.
