During the past decade the country gave birth to ground-breaking startups like Waze, which was eventually picked up by Google for more than $1 billion in 2013. Waze’s 100 employees at time received about $1.2 million each on average, one of the largest payout to employees in Israeli high tech.

Since the beginning of the year, NFTs keep hitting the headlines. Actually, in the tech world they are the big trend. Yet, NFTs aren’t that new as the first one has been released in early 2017 by a crypto company called Larva Labs. Today, blockchain technology is used pretty everywhere and NFTs should become the main assets of tomorrow’s video games industry.

In 2021, they found almost 8,700 of them. It is therefore not without saying that funding is even more crucial for startups in these times.

Let’s then try to walk you within the different funding stages a company can be going throughout its lifetime.
