A venturesome woman

Another field that DFJ invests in intensively is nanotechnology, a field that not many funds have yet dared to enter. "There are nano applications relevant to cleantech, for example molecules that can be exploited for clean energy. In Israel there is also a lot of academic research that helps in developing these kinds of applications. We want to make investments in places where we can really change the world, or at least change a market. And in nano there are tools that can do that. As far as the risk goes, a fund is supposed to develop tools to examine the worthwhileness of the risk taken in an investment. We think that, from this point of view, nano is a fascinating field, and it can change things in several industries."
