About Our Name
The Pitango is a semi-wild cherry that grows in abundance throughout Israel. However, the ripest Pitango fruit are always a challenge to find, hidden way out of general view within dense foliage.
Selecting the sweetest fruit is achievable by having venture capitalists eye for opportunities- a task which requires persistence, skill and perfect timing.
Whilst the best Pitangos are always the hardest to find, they are by far the most rewarding.
Our team’s unique ability to seek out the most remarkable hidden opportunities for our investors and invested companies is what sets Pitango apart.
