Israeli private high-tech companies raised $8.3 billion in 2019, up 30 percent from 2018, the Israel Venture Capital Research Center and ZAG law firm said on Wednesday.

This brings to $39.1 billion the amount Israeli tech firms raised since 2010.

“2019 marked a record year, capping a decade of successive increases in capital invested in the Israeli high-tech industry,” ZAG managing partner Shmulik Zysman said. “This growth is partly due to the growing foreign capital invested in the Israeli high-tech industry.”

In the fourth quarter, high-tech firms raised $2.3 billion, the highest since 2012, though the number of deals declined to 122, the IVC-Zag report showed.
