We invest $150,000 in your vision - and work closely with you to hire talent, get customers, and raise your next funding round.
SINCE 2017, WE'VE FUNDED OVER 80 STARTUPS WITH A COMBINED VALUATION OF OVER $1 Billion.

We participated in 3 accelerators. One of them is an elite program in the US and another is an elite program in Israel. The third is Fusion, which was by far the best of all: Only in the Fusion program we received, after 2 weeks only, a term sheet for investment (which we decided to forego), and through the program, we reached & talked to clients in the US market. Later on, we met our seed investors through Fusion's introduction. Even today, years after the program ended, Fusion still supports us and offers assistance, and keeps being a tremendous part of our success.

Yuval Man

Co-Founder & CEO

Fusion was our first interaction with the US market and investors, and helped us build our product, go to market, and fundraising strategies. What’s more, their support and value after the accelerator has been priceless, and they are true partners to our success.

Gal Biran

Co-Founder & CEO

I joined the Fusion program with a large community, but without a product or a tech partner. During the program I discovered tools, mentors, and diverse founders who inspired me to take the leap and turn my vision into a tech product. I quickly found my technical co-founder during the accelerator in Los Angeles, and we could test our MVP on customers we met there. Most importantly, Fusion is not just a two-month program, the added value resonates throughout your startup’s lifecycle as it’s an active community of entrepreneurs who share similar experiences and help each other grow. I recommend any early-stage entrepreneur to become a part of this community.

Bar Mor

Co-Founder CEO

The experience at Fusion was enriching and thought-provoking. This is an amazing opportunity for an Israeli startup to be exposed to the American market, create an initial network, and grow from there. It’s also a great way to spend time with other founders who are in a similar journey, to learn together and from each other, to connect and get recommendations. Guy and Yair are amazing people and it was a pleasure to work with them. They continue to support the company and advise us to this day, years later. I highly recommend any early-stage entrepreneur who wants to gain added value and build their network, including in the US, to join the program.

Tommy Barav

Co-Founder & CEO

The experience at Fusion was extremely positive. Great people, business opportunities, and a ticket to the US market! Our first US customers came from the program, and since then one of the founders has relocated to LA and we’ve opened an office there. If the US is your target market, I highly recommend getting in touch with Guy and Yair. They’ll take it from there.

Rami Kirshblum

Co-Founder and CEO

We were 3 Israeli founders when we arrived, and within 3 months we completed a round, reached our first potential US customers, and grew to 6 employees. The organic connection Fusion has with the American market turns helped us move from the Israeli market to the US naturally, quickly, and smoothly. We couldn’t have done it without them.

Yam Dvir

Co-Founder & CEO at Spetz (Acquired by Paradox)

It’s like boot camp for startups. It’s intense and really covers all the bases. The team and mentors are very hands-on and quickly understand strengths and weaknesses, so the assistance is tailored to the specific needs of each startup and the people behind it. The advantages go way beyond the program - whether it’s professional workshops, fine-tuning ideas, or connecting to the right people. On a personal level – brilliant people and fun to work with.

Alon Gilady

Co-Founder & CEO

We got a ton of value before, during, and after the program. For us, the most important support was during the two years after the accelerator ended - from speaking opportunities at events, to actively promoting us to investors and customers, and preparing our next fundraising rounds. We’re happy we had the chance to participate in Fusion and recommend it to every early-stage startup, especially if you’re trying to enter the US. market.

Idan Shem Tov

CEO & Co-founder

Fusion is a never-ending roller coaster of excellence. Guy and Yair consistently deliver value to their alumni, long after the acceleration program has ended

Iftach Cohen

Co-Founder & CEO

Fusion provides a soft landing for companies looking to scale global sales and hiring. The connections we made during and after the accelerator significantly contributed to our growth. The Fusion team is a major value add to our own leadership, from relevant feedback that improves the value proposition to concrete referrals to investors and clients.
