We partner with early stage ventures to build companies that transform lives and industries.

About Us

Since 1962, Elron has been at the forefront of Israeli innovation, as founders and early investors in companies such as Elbit Systems, Elscint, Zoran, Partner, Netvision and Given Imaging.

Today we remain committed to our vision of identifying transformative technologies, nurturing gifted entrepreneurs, and building companies into technology leaders.

Our team is dedicated to attracting and supporting imaginative and focused entrepreneurs and startups with never-been-done-before ideas. Group companies benefit from our combined technological, strategic, entrepreneurial & business expertise, broad networks, and wide attention span.

A word from our founder

RDC

Strategic JV

RDC was founded in 1993 by Elron and Rafael, a global leader of defense technologies and one of Israel's largest defense companies. RDC combines Rafael's scale and technological edge, with Elron's vast expertise in helping startups develop into leading tech companies.

Through RDC, which has exclusive rights to adapt Rafael's defense technologies for civilian markets, we initiate and develop new companies, and provide essential support from start to exit.

Since its inception, RDC has successfully invested in numerous hi-tech companies. A prime example of RDC's active end-to-end involvement in the growth of its companies is Given Imaging. Given Imaging redefined gastrointestinal disease diagnosis by developing the PillCam ingestible video capsule, based on a unique technology initially invented for military purposes. After becoming a world leader in its field, Given Imaging was acquired for $1 billion.
