OurCrowd, a global equity crowdfunding company, opened a new office located in Mayfair, London.
The new office will be headed by Lina White, formerly of Goldman Sachs, who will manage OurCrowd’s activities.
With a current membership of 25,000 global investors on its investment platform, OurCrowd expects to add thousands of new UK investors through exclusive events, increasing UK deal flow, close collaboration with venture capital funds, and helping Israeli startups penetrate the UK market.
Prior to heading OurCrowd’s UK operations, White was part of the Alternative Capital Markets Group within the Investment Management Division at Goldman Sachs in London. Her new role at OurCrowd will be to work closely with investors and portfolio companies in order to strengthen the relationship between London’s tech scene and the global tech ecosystem, especially Israel’s “Startup Nation”.
