From Idea to Investment with Shlomo Dovrat of Viola Group & Carmel Ventures

Startup Grind Tel Aviv recently hosted Viola Group and Carmel Ventures co-founder Shlomo Dovrat. A veteran of the Israeli Tech and Venture Capital scene, Shlomo started his career over 30 years ago as a bold entrepreneur. He took his first company public in the NASDAQ when he was just 26 years old, and took his second company public (Technomatix, now part of Siemens) when he was 34. His third and fourth company (Mint Technologies and Decalog), in which he was an investor, were both sold to Sungard a few years later, so by the age of 40, Shlomo found himself financially independent, but “jobless”, which spurred the creation of Viola Group, Israel’s premier technology oriented private equity investment group with $2 billion in assets under management.
