The $2.3 billion in capital raised during the first six months of 2017 puts Israeli start-ups on track to meet, and possibly exceed last year’s record startup fundraising of $4.8 billion.

Start-up financing began slowly in the month of July, but accelerated last week with six different companies amassing a total of $145 million in capital.

Digital market intelligence company SimilarWeb was the fundraising leader last week after closing a $47 million financing round.
