De-risking risky business

Let’s face it: early-stage ventures are risky business. Startups need more than funds to succeed: they need a village.

Next Gear Ventures supports companies beyond funding with a comprehensive ecosystem of resources and connections, increasing the odds of success – together.

A model built for traction

Core to our approach is helping NGV-backed ventures realize their product-market fit and growth potential early.

How? Through our 'de-risk' model that puts relationships and traction first.

Growth doesn’t
happen in a vacuum

Next Gear’s partnership with Drive TLV allows us to share resources, expand networking,  reduce overall risk and increase the probability that truly revolutionary technologies will be successful.

Market-fit first

Without a clear path to market, even the most brilliant innovations are bound to fail. That's why Next Gear ensures that companies identify their product-market fit and growth potential early, leveraging close relationships with local and global mobility partners to help them get there.

It’s all about the people

Above all other factors, it's the team that ensures success. We dedicate the time to build meaningful relationships with startup founders, establishing deep trust and mutual understanding to chart the best path forward.

Pro-founder. Always

Next Gear approaches investment as partnership, not hostile takeover. We do not require a hefty stake in companies for initial investment. Rather, our approach is to retain options to invest in future rounds as we build on our shared successes.


5 exits. 1 unicorn.
2 public companies.
Numerous successful follow-on investment rounds. Shared success sure is sweet.
