Infinity to invest in Israeli-China deals

Infinity Venture Capital has opened a $100-million to $150-million fund to invest in Israeli companies doing business abroad, with 40 percent of the funds targeted to Israeli-related deals in China. The rest of the fund will go to Israeli-related investments in India and Russia, said Amir Gal-Or, a managing partner in the Tel Aviv-based firm in an interview Monday.

Infinity invests in semiconductors, telecommunications software, medical devices, security, energy, and other sectors. "We are unique from a few angles, and our strongest differentiation is our Asia strategy," he said. "We have the fund in China and we execute Israeli technology in Asian countries, mainly in China, Russia, and India. We do that by partnering with local partners." One partner is the Chinese government. The firm has made four investments so far in China and has a team on the ground in Suzhou.
