10 Israeli Startups With Huge Potential

Posted on February 1, 2012

The Israeli startup scene is only getting stronger and stronger. After taking a look at many of the up and coming Israeli startups, here are 10 that seem very promising.

Parts of this were originally posted on Business Insider and reposted here with Ben Lang‘s permission.

1. Onavo

“Control your data, control your costs.”



As seen on Forbes, Mashable,

Possibly one of the most useful apps you’ll ever download, Onavo monitors your data usage and easily lets you cut down the usage. Just a few weeks ago they raised a whopping $10M.

2. Any.DO

“Make things happen.”

Elegance and simplicity are what make this to-do list app the very best one out there. Maybe that’s why it was downloaded over 500,000 times in it’s first 30 days.

3. Wibbitz 

“The new visual experience for your site!”

Very neat service that transforms text content into interactive short videos. After adding it’s platform to Wibiya, the service has been steadily growing.

4. Tawkon

 “Now keep talking.”

As radiation from cellphones becomes a hotter topic, this app will shine. Tawkon lets its users know how much radiation is being emmitted from their phone and how to avoid it.

5. BillGuard

“Protect your money.”

This web app is already saving its users plenty of money. Through sophisticated algorithms they are able to detect fraud and hidden charges on your credit card.

6. Shaker

“Where things happen.”

Shaker most recently won TechCrunch Disrupt, a highly coveted competition. They created a beautiful virtual world on Facebook.

7. Bizzabo

“Networking made easy.”

Bizzabo is without a doubt the best networking app out there. This app is becoming a must use at events of all kinds.

8. Magisto

“Magical video editing.”

Magisto actually makes video editing enjoyable. Their partnership with YouTube and recent iPhone app launch show plenty of growth on their roadmap.

9. Mobli

“See the world through other people’s eyes.”

This hot photo sharing startup has been ringing up downloads. Most recently Lance Armstrong announced his support for the app.

10. Fooducate

“Eat a bit better.”

This brilliant app allows users to scan any piece of food and see information on it. Recently it’s been featured all over.

There are plenty of other amazing startups I could mention, which would you suggest?

    The title should be 10 Israeli Web Startups With Huge Potential”. Where’s SolarEdge? It’s on its way to becoming Israel’s first billion dollar company.

    Or how about Adapteva, the first company to enable integration of 1000 microprocessors on a single chip.
    (disclaimer: shameless self serving plug, and yes I think we qualify as an Israeli company:-))

      Very impressive. As the person said below, only did web/mobile companies. Should have specified in the title. Thanks for the suggestion.

    The one on the list that I use is Any.DO. It is easily the best to do list for Android. I love how you can swipe to cross something off your list and you just have to shake your phone to clear all of your finished tasks. Very simple and nice design.

    Israel sure does have some great talent!

    Does any one of these companies even have any revenue?

      May have to ask them, but “huge potential” doesn’t mean they’re necessarily earning yet…

    What about the Tonara iPad app? Wired said they’ll change sheet music the way Amazon changed the business of hardback books…
