JNS.org – A fund backed by the government of Singapore and holding $200 million is planning to invest directly in Israeli technology start-up companies, at a time when Israeli companies have become increasingly drawn to the Asian market.

Alex Lin, the head of Infocomm Investments, which is part of Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, said that his company is currently negotiating with several Israeli companies. The fund’s investments in various Israeli companies will range from $1 million to $5 million.
