With a Record of Excellence For over a decade, Gil, Dan and Ariel Makov, leading members of Israel’s dynamic business community, have been active in sourcing investments for the country’s large and growing roster of start-up companies.

In recent years, they have diversified their services and have also successfully initiated and managed M&A transactions for mid-sized companies. With a rich background combining corporate/Tech law and business, investors & entrepreneurs – the Makovs have parlayed their many years of experience and numerous valuable connections into profits for their clients, including major corporations , private equity firms & individuals.

For over 10 years they are poised to assist Israeli innovative companies to get introduced to relevant quality investors worldwide. Identifying Israel-Based Growth Opportunities Known for its special brand of entrepreneurship, the Israeli market has gained a reputation for profitability and is ranked among the most innovative in the world.
High levels of scientific research, generous corporate incentives and an informal business culture have all played their part in the phenomenon known as “the start-up nation.

But perhaps most integral to its success and least understood is that as a result of the country’s small size, many of its most profitable local transactions depend on close relationships among the country’s active corporate players.

Sophisticated Insights & Flexible Approach

Being “Mayflower” settlers in Israel (1870) the Makov family is deeply entrenched in this network and work closely with distinguished professionals & leading public and private companies.

The OBV team can serve as ‘the eyes and ears’ of an international investor in Israel, combining the access available to locals with the expertise of seasoned financial and legal specialists.

Get Above The Noise

The average investor receives one new investment proposition every day (some get many more) and will invest in less than one percent of the deals he sees.
Simply meeting the investor’s criteria is not enough where deals compete for a limited supply of capital and, just as importantly, the investor’s limited time and attention.

So what makes a business
stand out from the crowd?

The quality of its relationship with the investor.
