In the first five months of 2024, Israeli privately-held tech companies have raised $4.1 billion.

Israeli startups raised nearly $1.5 billion in May 2024, according to press releases seen by "Globes."

This is the highly monthly figure for several years and the second successive month in which privately held tech companies in Israel have raised ovger $1 billion.

Israeli privately-held tech companies raised just $6.9 billion in 2023, according to IVC-Leumitech, after raising $15 billion in 2022 and a record $25.6 billion in 2021. In the first five months of 2024, Israeli startups have raised $4.1 billion.

AI data platform company Weka raised $140 million, and drone manufacturer company Xtend raised $40 million.
