90 seconds with the mastermind of the OurCrowd Summit

Super-investor Jon Medved reveals the tech sectors that he's most bullish on.

What do a Nobel Prize winner, a professional hockey player and a viral YouTube sensation have in common? They joined hundreds of entrepreneurs who all filled the hallways, auditoriums and lounges of the International Convention Center on a cold, but sunny day in Jerusalem for the 2019 OurCrowd Global Investor Summit. In total, more than 18,000 people registered for the marathon one-day event. It featured dozens of workshops, speeches, networking parties and even an entire area devoted to cannabis tech – which was right next to the waffle bar. (In case you're wondering, 4,000 waffles were served.)

The man of the hour was Jon Medved. The high-tech entrepreneur is the founder and CEO of OurCrowd, a company that has invested in nearly 200 Israeli startups. At this point, he's launching them so fast – at a pace of about two a week – that it's hard to keep up with each and every one of them. Nonetheless, there are some which he is very bullish on.

In between sessions and meetings, we grabbed Medved for a little one-on-one time to find out the three tech sectors he's most excited about. You can see his answers in the video interview below:
