Deep Tech entrepreneurship is a challenging and most demanding adventure.
We at Incubit, dare to invest in deep technology: unique, differentiated, protected, or hard to reproduce, based on technological or scientific advances.
We understand technology, recognize innovation, and are set to navigate and support your journey from concept through POC and into product launching and business success.
Incubit operates within the Israeli Innovation Authority (IIA) incubators program. We invest about $1M in early-stage deep-tech startups for the first 2 years of operation, in addition to in-kind investment provided by Elbit Systems. We also provide support and services such as office space and labs, accounting and legal, business development, marketing, mentoring, and support for future investment rounds.
Incubit bridges between all-commercial technology startups, and Elbit Systems an Israeli tech giant presenting an outstanding history of R&D-based innovations in a broad portfolio of airborne, land and naval systems and products for defense, homeland security and commercial applications. Elbit Systems [NSDQ: ESLT] was established in 1967, becoming one of Israel’s elite technology firms, over with 17,500 employees.
As entrepreneurs and investors, we dare to invest in super-early super-tech startups and help them succeed. We understand the technology and recognize the efforts required to develop deep technology and build a strong growing business. We bridge the gap between the strength of a corporate and the flexibility of a startup.
Our evaluation process is backed by Elbit System’s experts who support the assessment of technological differentiation, risks, and time-to-market of each team. Within this evaluation, we explore the technology behind the idea, assure its scientific and market viability, recognize synergies it may have with Elbit’s fields of interest, and get to know closely the people on the team. First, we seek out interesting civilian applications. Any future match with the homeland security market is merely a bonus. Once identified and selected by Incubit, the startups will be guided through the process of building a comprehensive and detailed work plan that will be presented to Incubit’s investment committee – and following its approval also be brought to the Israeli Innovation Authority (IIA) investment committee.
