OUR PEOPLE

OUR SUCCESS

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Catalyst primarily invests in mature public and private technology and industrial Israeli and Israeli-related companies that require a capital injection, strategic guidance and most importantly the right partner in order to expand their business in China and across the world. Our portfolio companies tend to be innovative, with significant revenues and already run profitable operations; they have significant growth potential and tangible growth engines, and lastly a highly capable and motivated management team.

We are long term investors and seek to partner with management to shape the future of their business. Our managing partners typically serve on the boards of our portfolio companies and are proactively involved. We work with our companies to best understand the operational and strategic challenges as well as the opportunities faced by them. This understanding enables our team to provide guidance and support that helps the companies realize their full potential. Our portfolio companies benefit from the vast transactional experience of our managing partners and their wide-reaching global networks.

Our sector diversification is key to Catalyst’s successful investment strategy. Our investments are spread over a wide variety of sectors, such as agriculture, energy, water, industrials & manufacturing processes, aerospace and defense, materials, chemicals, high-tech, med-tech, life sciences and others. We do not invest in financial or real-estate companies.
