Family Office Venture Deal
Volume Growth Outpaced VC
By Yohan Albo
Historically, Family Offices have not made significant investments into tech startups, preferring to be limited partners in venture capital. Rather, most of their investments have been in traditional public equities, bonds and real estate.
In recent years, more and more Family Offices are undertaking social entrepreneurship projects and investing in high tech startups and other impact ventures, creating new and exciting opportunities for high-net-worth investors.
According to Crunchbase, deal volume growth has been higher and faster among family offices than VC funds for a significant period of time. Furthermore, the data suggests that Family Offices making investments into startups has indeed recently become a trend, corroborating anecdotal evidence of the phenomena.
The graph below is a comparison in the growth in deal volume worldwide between Family Offices and VC firms
For example, the graph shows that compared to 2010 the reported deal volume from Family Offices was 6x greater in 2015 whereas it was only 2.5x greater for VC firms.

Our core services, designed for CEOs, Executives (VP-level and above) and Entrepreneurs, can be divided into three areas: Market Intelligence, Corporate and Product Strategy, and Execution Support on top-down strategic initiatives.
The quality of the work we deliver in the three areas mentioned above is equivalent to what your company may already get from the top-3 consulting firms that operate in the Israeli market, BUT here’s the twist and why our tier-1 clients think we are superior.

We are at the strategic intersection of Business and Technology. Thanks to our rich background, we know how to connect the dots between the two worlds, and how to be very creative when it comes to disrupting business models or addressing sub-optimized processes with the help of advanced technological solutions (Machine Learning, Big Data, Data Visualization, Enterprise Software Solutions, and many other tools present in our toolbox).
This is a built-in feature.
No account manager, no complex communication chain, etc...
