Business Overview

Company
Investor Type

RDC was founded in 1993 by Elron and Rafael, a global leader of defense technologies and one of Israel’s largest defense companies. RDC combines Rafael’s scale and technological edge, with Elron’s vast expertise in helping startups develop into leading tech companies.

Through RDC, which has exclusive rights to commercialize Rafael’s defense technologies in civilian markets, we initiate and develop new companies, and provide essential support from start to exit.

Since its inception, RDC has successfully invested in numerous hi-tech companies. A prime example of RDC’s active end-to-end involvement in the growth of its companies is Given Imaging. Given Imaging redefined gastrointestinal disease diagnosis by developing the PillCam ingestible video capsule, based on a unique technology initially invented for military purposes. After becoming a world leader in its field, Given Imaging was acquired for $1 billion.

We invest primarily in early stage ventures with significant exit potential, in which we seek significant shareholder stakes, enabling us to provide hands-on support and contribute from our experience.

We play a defining role in the development of our group companies, by means of active involvement in all aspects of their business and day-to-day operations, to help them reach their long-term objectives.

As an operational holding company that invests its own capital in new and existing group companies, we have the flexibility to support the growth of our group companies over the long term, weather setbacks, and maximize exit events.
