捷克投行Benson Oak宣布筹集1亿美元区块链创企投资基金

Benson Oak是总部位于布拉格的投资银行。该行近日宣布,将筹集1亿美元,成立一支专注于投资区块链创业公司的投资基金,专门投资于以色列市场。

据以色列媒体Calcalistech周日报道,新成立的投资机构Benson Oak Ventures已经获得了2500万美元的投资,目标是在今年年底前达到1亿美元。

报告称,该投资基金的资金将来自私人投资者和家族理财室,不包括机构投资者。

Benson Oak在报告中表示,将专注于种子阶段的区块链公司和面向消费者的创业公司。根据Benson Oak Ventures网站显示,主要是可以提供消费者产品的创业公司,或者创建一个促进社区发展、促进区块链在消费者层面使用的平台。

目前,以色列的几个正在进行中的区块链应用程序主要都是由大型金融机构创建的,更多地关注企业间的设定。

CoinDesk此前曾报道过,以色列最大的银行Hapoalim银行正与微软合作,开发一个基于区块链的平台,用于创建数字银行担保。

与此同时,特拉维夫证券交易所(TASE)也正与埃森哲合作,建立一个区块链证券借贷平台,旨在允许所有金融工具的直接借贷。

Benson Oak, an investment bank based in Prague, Czech Republic, has announced it is raising $100 million to launch an investment fund dedicated to the Israeli market and taking a focus on blockchain startups.

According to a report from Israeli media outlet Calcalistech on Sunday, the new investment arm, called Benson Oak Ventures, has already secured $25 million and aims to reach the $100 million target by the end of 2018.

The new venture's capital will come from private investors and family offices, and will exclude institutional investors, the report said. With a focus on seed-stage blockchain and consumer-facing startups, Benson Oak said in the report it anticipates to release the names of two portfolio companies in the coming days.

According to Benson Oak Ventures' website, the fund will be interested primarily in blockchain startups offering consumer products or creating platforms that enable community growth, all in an effort to boost blockchain's use at the consumer level.

While the site of a thriving blockchain startup scene, several of the more major initiatives in Israel are being driven by large financial institutions that focus more on a business-to-business setting.

As previously reported by CoinDesk, Bank Hapoalim, Israel's largest bank, is working with Microsoft to develop a blockchain-based platform for creating digital bank guarantees.

Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) is also teaming up with Accenture to build a blockchain securities lending platform aimed to allow direct lending of all financial instruments.
