DFJ Tamir Fishman Ventures

Draper Fisher Jurvetson ("DJF"), a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm, has joined forces with Israeli VC Tamir Fishman Ventures. "DFJ Tamir Fishman Ventures" will serve as DFJ's exclusive partner in Israel. (Here's their statement.)

Tamir Fishman has focused on early-stage communications, IT and life sciences companies. DFJ, however, has a large portfolio of almost twenty clean technology companies in the U.S. It will be interesting to see whether the new partnership will now invest in Israeli clean technology companies.
