Logistics technology attracted Aleph VC’s Michael Eisenberg precisely because of the sector-specific challenges, which demand the combination of great software, stellar data management, and outstanding leadership:
We like hard problems that help big global customers and industries. We also like to invest in entrepreneurs who tackle big challenges – ones that increase transparency, improve convenience, take costs out of the system, and are data intensive. Logistics checks all of those boxes.
This is the reasoning behind Aleph’s logistics tech spree. In only three years, the VC has already accumulated four logistics and transportation companies in its portfolio (Freightos, Bringg, Windward, and Nexar).
What does Michael think all four companies have in common?
They are all founded by ambitious entrepreneurs, tackling challenges that most people find intimidating. We also believe that data is the foundation of all 21st century business; he who has the data will win in the 21st century. All of our logistics investment focus heavily on data collection and analytics.
