Jeff Pulver: I don’t care what they say about crisis

Famed US angel investor Jeff Pulver, who has invested in a number of Israeli companies, such as Innovid Media Ltd., SemantiNet Ltd. and Kayote Networks Inc., is one of those people who remain unfazed by the current economic crisis. “I don’t listen to pessimistic statements, and I’m not bothered by the things other people have been saying about the financial crisis,” he told “Globes”, in an interview ahead of his visit to Israel to attend the “Globes” Israel Business Conference.
“What is true is that when people start panicking, they freeze, and in cases like these, the chances of companies surviving are smaller. Investors too are using the crisis as an excuse since the opportunities are still there. Just remember that even Google was founded during the previous crisis, so I think that the crisis actually encourages creativity among entrepreneurs, especially when there are fewer resources.”
