Hope in the face of crisis: Giza and Proxima lead a $2.3 Million financing round in Soluto


Giza Venture Capital has joined Proxima Investments in leading the $2.3M first financing round in Soluto. Soluto was founded in 2007 by Ishay Green, who previously co-founded Onigma which was sold to McAfee for $20M; and Tomer Dvir, the company’s CEO, who formerly served as a senior executive at MDG Medical.

The company is currently in stealth mode and plans to release its initial product in early 2009.

“I am thrilled that leading investment firms such as Giza and Proxima are leading an investment in Soluto,” said Soluto Chairman Nadav Zohar, a former senior executive at Morgan Stanley. “We believe that the added value that they bring to the company will go a long way in ensuring its success”.

As part of the investment round, Naftali Bennett and Lior Golan –who previously founded and managed Cyota, which was sold to RSA for $145M – have joined Soluto as advisors to the management. Additionally Golan and Bennett participated in the investment.

Yaron Valler, a partner as Giza Venture Capital who has joined the company’s Board of Directors, said, “We are excited to invest in such an experienced management team. Soluto provides a unique and innovative solution to an unmet market need and defines a new category of software tools.”
