Cukierman & Co. Investment House – the Israeli leader in investment banking services for Tech, Life Sciences and Industrial companies – announced today the appointment of Michael Coen as Partner of the Technology, Media and Telecom division.
Michael will develop the TMT activities and work with leading Israeli tech companies to increase their international exposure and funding. The department has helped some of the best Israeli companies become unicorns, leading their funding journey from early-stage to pre-IPO.
At only 26 years old Michael Coen is the youngest Partner ever in the organization. Michael brings an extensive network of international investment firms with whom he has worked and built personal relationships over the past, together with warm connections to leading Israeli CEOs in industries such as Enterprise Software, Data Analytics, Cybersecurity, AI&ML, Sport-tech and Retail-tech.
“We have made huge progress over the past three years, securing new customers in top-tier industries, and also helping companies in sectors that are under-the-radar such as Logistics and Retail” says Michael, “It gives us a lot of fulfillment seeing Israeli companies opening new offices abroad because of our joint efforts. We always build relationships for the long run and typically decide to work with CEOs after we see the potential for
a strong, durable and healthy relationship”.
