Takwin is a venture capital fund and incubator, making early-stage investments in hi-tech companies run by Arab entrepreneurs in Israel. We nurture the startup spirit in the Arab Israeli communities and empower Arab entrepreneurs to build successful companies. Founded by Imad Telhami, Takwin is a unique and first-of-its-kind cooperative venture between Israel’s two largest funds – Pitango (run by Chemi Peres) and JVP (run by Dr. Erel Margalit).
We are the first VC located in the northern region of Israel, and Takwin Labs is the first venture infrastructure created for northern entrepreneurs and startups. With a proactive investment approach, we help brilliant entrepreneurs build their companies even prior to investment. By providing help with the business plan, product, strategy, and more, we aim to harness our know-how of the startup journey and embark on that journey with our entrepreneurs.
