There are 25 Israeli startups you should be keeping your eye on in 2014, according to a new report by the American business magazine, Forbes. They are: Kaltura, ZUtA Labs, Yotpo, Petbnb, MyPermissions, GetYou, Otonomic, Yevvo, BillGuard, Optimove, StartApp, Petbnb, FeeX, Azure PCR, SCiO, Moovit, Interlude, StoreDot, Tipalti, Hello Doctor, Telesofia, Everything.Me, Takipi, Mobile OCT, SundaySky and FundBox.
“Innovation continues and a new crop of Israeli tech startups are on their way up, transforming healthcare, entertainment, finance, media and a myriad of other industries,” reads the report.
These “hot startups” have all secured funding and are deemed by the magazine as the most likely to make an exit this calendar year or file for an IPO.
The magazine cites that Kaltura is most likely to be “one of the next billion-dollar exits” thanks to its wide-ranging video solutions platform. “Today anytime you’re watching online video from over 300,000 media, corporate and educational organizations ranging from HBO to TMZ and Harvard to Bank of America, it’s being powered by Kaltura’s highly flexible, robust platform,” reads the article.
Another game changer is Petbnb. The startup will do for dogs what Airbnb did for travelers. “The service, which is currently available in Israel and is coming to the US soon, pairs pet owners with caretakers who can watch their pet while they travel,” the report says.
And, the list wouldn’t be complete without FeeX.
