Career History
Venture Partner
2008 - ?

Giza is a hands-on manager which invests in seed and early-stage technology companies in the communications, semiconductors, information technology, enterprise software, life sciences, cleantech, media, internet and gaming & entertainment sectors. They aim to add value to investee companies through board participation, partnering with management to provide support for strategic, marketing, financial and personnel-related decisions.The firm has a special program called Ofek which is devoted to very early-stage investments, generally making relatively small investments up to $0.5 million in the form of convertible loans in start-ups at the seed or pre-seed stage.Their initial investment is usually milestone-based and seeks to bring the company to a significant stage of development. Once the milestone goals are met and if the company remains a good investment, Giza then looks to lead the first institutional round.The Ofek Program also encompasses EIR investments, in which the firm brings experienced entrepreneurs and managers in-house in order to create a new business or to take an active role in a venture that lacks leadership. Giza acts like an angel investor, making quick decisions. Generally internet/new media/gaming companies are the best candidates for such investments.
