The Israeli tech industry grapples with female underrepresentation.In this Finder spotlight, we highlight female founder and co-founders - and the companies, funds, and accelerators that are leading the change and stand out in terms of their investment in female entrepreneurship.

Women's Representation in Israeli Tech

Only 16% of active tech companies were founded or co-founded by women. The highest representation can be found in the Health Tech and Agrifood Tech sectors with 23% and 20% of active companies with women founders, respectively.


The rate has been growing over time but has shown little improvement in recent years, with 20.9% of companies launched in 2023 founded or co-founded by women (Figure 1).
