Canaan Partners, founded in 1987, plans to invest the new fund in building disruptive global companies in the technology and healthcare sectors. Its Israeli portfolio includes touch screen developer N-trig Ltd., online live video developer LiveU Ltd., and 3D gesture recognition software developer PrimeSense Ltd.
Canaan Partners originally planned to raise $500 million for its ninth fund, but received strong demand from its existing limited partner base, as well as selected new limited partners.
The firm has been operating in Israel for over a decade and in 2005, it opened a local office run by Shay, whose entrepreneurial track record includes V-Secure Technologies, sold to Radware Ltd. (Nasdaq: RDWR) in 2005, and Business Layers, sold to Netegrity Inc. (Nasdaq: NETE) in 2003.
