Value Creation at Innovation Endeavors
Innovation Endeavors is an evergreen venture capital firm, founded by Google’s Eric Schmidt and Dror Berman in 2009 with offices in Tel Aviv and Palo Alto. Our investment focus is at the intersection of emerging technologies and big markets, specifically within retail and commerce, digital data analytics, content and discovery marketing, Internet of Things, business applications, and cyber security.
We have invested in more than 100 companies to date. Examples of companies in our diverse portfolio include: Uber (mobile-app-based transportation), Datorama (marketing analytics), Keywee (content analysis), Planet Labs (a micro satellite company), Slice (big data for online purchases acquired by Rakuten), Estimote (small wireless beacons that you can attach to any location or object that broadcast tiny radio signals), and SoFi (online, peer-to-peer loan platform).
Our Value Creation Approach:
In order to support our companies and to bridge the gaps that we consistently see between markets, needs, and talent, we have created an internal Value Creation Team. Our team is focused on partnering with leading industry players in order to better understand their needs and give them access to the most innovative solutions and outstanding talent.
Partnering with our team means:
- Access to our portfolio companies in the US and in Israel. We work with you to understand your needs and then introduce you to relevant companies that are of interest to you.
- Access to invite-only events in which future innovation is discussed by top entrepreneurs and experts.
- Access to our ecosystem comprised of industry leaders and partners, creatives, fortune 500 companies, and top-tier multinational technology companies.
We have been working with industry leaders to understand their needs and introduce them to relevant companies from our portfolio, including: Macy’s, IBM, Kimberly-Clark, New York Times, JPMorgan, Bank of America, and many more.
The key to our process is working closely with you. Listening to the challenges you face and introducing you to selective companies which best match your needs. We are excited to get to know you and want to learn more about how we can be helpful.
