TechCrunch TechCrunch 28/04/2014 Mike Butcher

Funding iPad keyboards on Kickstarter is one thing. But equity crowd funding is pretty hot right now. And today out of Israel has closed a $25 million Series B funding round – a pretty big one for this sector.

Terms of who led the investment were – unusually – not disclosed, but we know Investec Bank Australia participated as did Mistral Equity Partners.

OurCrowd CEO, Jon Medved says the investment will be used to expand in Israel and worldwide.

The company launched in February 2013 and raised a $5.5 million a Series A funding round then. It claims to have 4,000 investors and says it’s raised $43 million for 36 portfolio company teams in 26 different countries. Though most of the activity is in Israel.
