Ex-military leaders launch venture capital firm
Plowshares Ventures has launched as an Israel-based, but globally-focused, VC firm focused on the "intersection of the defense and commercial sectors," according to confidential documents obtained by Axios. The firm's three managing partners are:
- Benny Gantz, former chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Forces
- Moshe Mor, formerly with Greylock Partners
- Moti Shniberg, founder of Face.com (acquired by Facebook)
The group also has several senior advisors, including former U.S. Marine Corps General John Allen and Lord David Richards (former chief of staff of British Armed Forces).
