is the dynamic collaboration between two visionary organizations, the Menomadin Foundation
and KATAO Venture Partners
We are dedicated to investing in transformative technologies emerging from the Israeli academy, nurturing them into thriving companies ready to make a global impact. We believe that the Israeli academy
is a blue ocean opportunity in terms of innovation, with tremendous potential for dozens of technologies that sometimes have difficulty crossing the academic threshold into the commercial market. We scout, ideate, and transition technologies from research to market readiness. We don't stop at funding; we offer comprehensive support, helping to shape products, build dynamic teams, and leverage partnerships with industry leaders.
Simultaneously, we actively seek out existing companies with ambitious entrepreneurs
looking to drive innovation and growth. With extensive experience in entrepreneurship, investment, and academia, we bring valuable funding and strategic guidance to the ventures we support.
Our team comprises seasoned professionals who have walked the entrepreneurial path, led investments in venture capital and private equity, and contributed to the academic landscape.
