Nielsen Innovate

Business Overview

Nielsen Innovate (NIF) is an early stage incubator and investment fund that specializes in retail, research, marketing and media technologies.

Our goal is to help early stage startups become successful global companies. Our team provides mentoring, strategic guidance, operational support and introductions to potential follow on investments. Unlike traditional investment funds, Nielsen Innovate offers the strong connection and access to Nielsen and its globally located Fortune 1000 clients.

NIF was launched in 2013 by Nielsen, a global performance management company that provides a comprehensive understanding of what consumers watch and buy, and Partam Hi-Tech, one of Israel’s top early stage venture capital funds. In 2014 additional investors such as R&R ventures, Fred H. Langhammer and Itzhak Fisher have joined as shareholders.

We are looking for entrepreneurs who possess disruptive and opportunistic digital technology know-how – and seek to convert those from ideas to projects to global businesses. If you have an idea for the next big thing in mobile, internet or new media; an innovative technological approach; and a well thought-through vision – please send us an application.

Nielsen Innovate operates an incubator under license agreement with The Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) of Israel, providing substantial benefits to early stage entrepreneurs.
