Eran Yarkoni

Mentor, Serial Entrepreneur
  • I team up with entrepreneurs to jointly build exciting high-tech companies, contributing my business experience, my track record of building and financing successful startup companies, and my international network. I’m mostly focused on startups owning a significant technological advantage.

My high-tech career has developed from engineering to executive roles and venture capital. I have started my career at Intel, where I had the privilege to manage the Pentium® MMX Processor operations, taking it from development and manufacturing to >$10B in sales. 

I co-founded and led EnStorage, a developer of breakthrough energy storage systems for renewable and conventional energy applications, and CyOptics, a leading provider of high-speed active components for optical networks, which was acquired by Avago Technologies. 

My investment track record includes the role of CEO of Capital Nature, a renewable energy incubator, and Venture Partner in Israel Seed Partners, a $250M early stage Israeli Venture Capital fund, as well as seed investments in early stage startups.
