Isratrade Investments was founded in 2007 by Joseph Magen to serve foreign investors in Israel.Isratrade primarily serves Christian investors who have a love for Israel, the Land of the Bible, but have little or no personal connections in Israel. We serve as a bridge, or conduit, for our clients by opening access to Israel investment opportunities, performing due diligence, and serving as their "local eyes and ears" on the ground in Israel.
Israel is called the "startup nation," having thousands of hi-tech startups even though the popluation is only 9M people.
Israel spends more on R&D (4.3% of the GDP) than any other country, and companies such as Amazon, Apple, IBM, and Microsoft have choosen Israel for R&D.
Be part of the miracle of the modern State of Israel, which was founded just 71 years ago in 1948 and has grown to be a thriving economic center as the only democracy in the Middle East.
I am a husband, father of four, investment advisor, software engineer, and entrepreneur.
I previously worked at Evergreen Venture Capital and Red Hat before starting Isratrade.
I moved to Israel from the USA in 2001. I graduated from Virgina Tech University with a B.S. degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering, and completed a Masters of Business (MBA) from Bar Ilan University in Israel.
