Jerusalem Venture Partners was founded in Jerusalem in 1993 by Erel Margalit. The firm has overseen at least 26 successful exits, more than any other Israel-based investor. These exits have also included some of the most successful in Israeli history, including the IPO of business intelligence software company QlikTech (valued at more than $2.5 billion) and the sale of Chromatis Networks to Lucent Technologies (for $4.8 billion, the largest sale of an Israeli company ever to that point). 


In 2007, Margalit established a Media Quarter in and around the historical train station compound in Jerusalem. Along with the main venture capital firm, the Media Quarter houses the JVP Media Labs, a technological early stage investment incubator; 10 start-up media companies; "Zappa Jerusalem in the Lab," a music club and concert venue for some of Israel's leading singers; and "JVP Community" ("Bakehila"), a youth empowerment program supporting up to 3,000 youngsters in 5 underprivileged Jerusalem neighborhoods. JVP Media Quarter employs about 150 entrepreneurs, engineers, developers and artists.
