Greenfield Partners, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based investment firm focused on early growth stage technology and tech-enabled businesses, promoted Raz Mangel to partner.

Mangel joined Shay Grinfeld, Yuda Doron, Avery Schwartz, and Nir Goldstein in leading the early growth fund’s strategic direction and investment activities.

Before joining Greenfield Partners, Mangel spent several years as an investment banker at Barclays, where he worked on some of the most significant technology deals in Israel during his time there, and prior to that he focused on M&A at Ernst & Young (EY). He joined Greenfield six years ago, while the fund represented TPG Growth in Israel, and was an instrumental part of the spinout into an independent fund during late 2019. Mangel holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Accounting from Tel Aviv University, and an MBA from University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

Mangel has been instrumental in several of Greenfield Partners’ key investments, including Vast Data, BigPanda, Guardicore (exited) and Avanan (exited), and assisted in leading the investment while staying very involved in several key portfolio companies including Coralogix, Silverfort, and Mixtiles. 

Founded in 2016 by TPG Growth to lead investments in Israel, Greenfield Partners spun-out into an independent fund in late 2019 under the leadership of partners Shay Grinfeld, Yuda Doron, and Avery Schwartz. Today, Greenfield Partners oversees nearly a billion dollars across several funds and investment vehicles, targeting early growth stage companies in enterprise software, hardware, fintech, and cybersecurity. The fund is dedicated to accelerating market entry and rapid growth for its portfolio companies. Notable investments include VAST Data, with a recent valuation of over $9 billion, Coralogix, BigPanda, and Silverfort, among others such as Capitolis, Cynet, DustPhotonics, Equitybee, floLIVE, Mixtiles, Panorays, Planck, Quali, and Torq. Additionally, the fund has exited with the sales of Guardicore to Akamai and Avanan to Check Point.
