Event Details

OurCrowd invites you to an exclusive lunch Wednesday, July 17th in Chicago, for accredited investors only, to meet the CEO of a unique Israeli startup that is raising funds through OurCrowd. Join us for lunch, meet the company CEO and hear their presentation highlighting their traction and growth.



Wednesday, July 17th - 12:00PM


The Offices of Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione, NBC Tower - Suite 3600, 455 North Cityfront Plaza Drive, Chicago, IL 60611

About the company: This Israeli startup offers businesses a simple solution to increase their online videos' marketing power. Though digital video ad spending is reaching over $4.1B in 2013, small businesses struggle to make videos that convert viewers into customers. This startup's solution dramatically increases the ROI of businesses' video marketing by increasing viewer engagement by a factor of 16. Tens of thousands of businesses have already registered and are using this company's solution, and its client base has doubled quarterly for the past four quarters. It is currently raising an investment round through OurCrowd.


In order to attend, you need RSVP on eventbrite, then register as an accredited investor on the OurCrowd website.  Visit OurCrowd and if you meet the U.S. criteria of an “accredited investor”, click "join” to register.  Please note in order to hear presentations from companies we are currently funding and to view the content of our full website you must accredit online.



OurCrowd is an online platform that gives individuals an innovative, new way to find and invest in Israeli startups. Jon Medved, one of Israel's most well-known entrepreneurs, created OurCrowd to allow accredited investors to

1) have access to quality early stage companies;

2) have a professional diligence research-team evaluate the deals; 

3) negotiate legal documentation on their behalf.

OurCrowd's expert staff and partners analyze around 25+ startup companies a week from which it selects one to two a month.  OurCrowd then commits to fund those companies, posts them on our website and invites the OurCrowd accredited investors to invest alongside us.

The OurCrowd platform has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, CNN, Bloomberg TV as well as many Israeli publications.  Since launching six months ago, OurCrowd's members have invested over $12 million in capital for 20 startups.

Remember, investing in early stage companies is inherently risky and should be a small part of your overall investment portfolio.
