Shlomo is a Great Asset

Fund: Jerusalem Global Ventures

Posted by Anonymous on 2008-06-04

PUBLIC:

I have known Shlomo Kalish for over 10 years, and have pitched to him ideas as an entrepreneur (unsuccessfully â€" he didn’t invest) and now work with him as a CEO recruited to run one of JGV’s portfolio companies. His response time and feedback was always quick and insightful.
Shlomo very much set’s the tone for JGV, this being his baby over the last 15 years (starting as an investment bank â€" then moving to direct investments) he now manages the fund. He is well versed on the going’s on of the technology markets (Internet, Semiconductor, Enterprise Software) and takes a long term view to working with his portfolio companies, never getting bogged down in details, and provides the CEO nice breathing room. Shlomo has been supportive and understanding during the challenging times of re-building the company, and has the ability to pull out a long list of contacts in the technology industry to help with everything from brainstorming, market validation and even additional strategic financing.

Shlomo Kalish Is/Was the Alpha Male of This VC

Fund: Jerusalem Global Ventures

Posted by chompyZ on 2007-03-24

PUBLIC:

Shlomo Kalish, the prominent person behind this fund, is an "outsider" in the Israeli local VC industry. He used to be much more aggressive than his colleagues, and used to go into "internet" start-ups and alike which were looked at as forbidden animals by most Israeli VCs. In other words -€œ he used to be a real venture capital, not some "executive" like most other venture capitalists. However, with the burst of the bubble, he was crucified by the local press, along with the fall of a floppy VC he founded and promoted (Yazam.com ). After that, he lost all his confidence, but I hear he is back in the business now, maybe a bit more mature, but I hope he preserved his aggressive attitude and not adopted a sleek venture capital attitude like most others.
