About Us

Our Philosophy and Story

Our Philosophy



1. We believe in the boundless opportunities of Israeli-founded startups when brought up in the right environment with access to funding and resources.

2. We know well that integrating Israeli technology, innovation, and stamina with the ecosystem of San Francisco (and the broader Silicon Valley) creates the most invincible startup.

3. We understand what physical and mental resources Israeli companies need. 

4. By this, we mean bridging the cultural gap between Israel/U.S, and providing startups with knowledge and with strategic introductions with top corporations and investors.

5. While we understand the importance of venture fundraising, we believe that the most invaluable asset of this program is the unparalleled access to information and exponential knowledge that a startup will gain. 

6. We aim to position companies in this program for their Series A rounds and future growth.


Our Story

Jemm Ventures Accelerator is the result of 7 years of hard work with early, pre-seed stage Israeli-Jewish startups in San Francisco/Bay Area and New York City. 

Like yourself, we are visionaries, creators, builders, and we execute on our beliefs.

We built the largest Jewish entrepreneurial startup hub, Jews For Entrepreneurship, a non profit that was launched in 2009 and has hosted numerous (over 100) tech events and programs in San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, Boston and Tel Aviv. Among its programs are the Series A Pitch, geared for Israeli startups raising their Series A, as well as JFE Accelerator, a 2-3 month accelerator program for pre-seed startups with top Silicon Valley and NYC technologists. Over 120 startups participated at JFE events, ranging from ideation stage to mature companies raising their A rounds.

We discontinued running JFE Accelerator because it was hard to scale the program under the non profit.

Instead, we launched Jemm Ventures Accelerator as a separate entity (not related to JFE Accelerator) focused exclusively on Israeli B2B startups.

For this program, we have built a startup preselection board consisting of successful investors and entrrepreneurs who are helping us with the preselection process.
