The article discusses the goal of Israel-based venture capital (VC) funds to raise as much as $2 billion within 12 months. In October 2007, one of the oldest and most active funds, Evergreen Venture Partners, announced that it had completed its fifth fund, raising $200 million. A month earlier, the Israeli press reported that the country's largest VC fund, Pitango Venture Capital, had also completed its fifth fund. The $300 million raised brings Pitango's total funds under management to $1.3 billion. Gemini, Carmel Ventures, Genesis Partners, Giza Venture Capital, Tamir Fishman, Walden Israel, Aviv Venture Capital, Israel Cleantech Ventures and SCP Vitalife are all either raising or planning funds.
