Greetings from Tel Aviv and welcome to another monthly wrap up and Happy Halloween! October was a special month in Israel, as we celebrated Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah. With such a preponderance of holidays one might think that deal volume might suffer due to the stop and start nature of each week… and one would be correct!

This month there were only 8 venture investments announced for $234m, alongside $75m in disclosed M&A. Time to dig a bit deeper!

October saw relatively slow acquisition activity, highlighted by Proofpoint’s $55m acquisition of FireLayers.

October also saw light investment activity, highlighted by Payoneer’s $180m Series E.
