The coronavirus pandemic has further weakened a global food supply chain already under strain from increasing population and climate change. Startup technology is increasing farmers’ yields, easing distribution and enhancing irrigation, creating unprecedented opportunities for investment in fast-growing AgTech companies. Join us on Tuesday, October 20th and hear how these advances in agricultural technology are being snapped up by local farmers and multinational corporations, and how you can invest in their success. (For accredited investors only).
Israel’s high-tech fundraising smashed all records in September, breaking the $1 billion barrier for the first time in a single month – a glimmer of good news amid the devastation of the coronavirus pandemic. The astonishing $1.2 billion raised by Israeli companies in September brings the three-quarter total for 2020 to $7.6 billion and sets this tiny country of just nine million people on track to raise more than $10 billion in a single year – another record. But the achievement will be hollow unless we can spread the economic benefits beyond the small proportion of the population actively working in the tech sector. Even while many Israeli startups and investors celebrate their success, some 900,000 people are now either unemployed on furlough. Never has the evidence of a two-tier economy been more stark. While some smart entrepreneurs and investors ride the pandemic wave, millions more are drowning. In this two-tier economy, technology must be the escalator which allows everyone to move up a level.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis called in OurCrowd’s newest investment, Tel Aviv-based BlueGreen Water Technologies, to protect Lake Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries from harmful algal blooms that have turned waterways green, poisoned fish and reduced air quality. The blooms “have a debilitating effect on our ecosystems and our communities,” said Gov. DeSantis. “That is why, for the first time, I made it a priority to secure dedicated funding to deploy innovative technology to mitigate blue-green algae blooms.” Lake Guard Oxy is a proprietary innovative algicide developed by BlueGreen that floats on the surface and prevents the algae from growing. The Governor saw the effectiveness of the treatment when he led a trade mission to Israel in 2019. It will be the first of its kind to be tested in Florida.

Dataloop raises $16M for AI data management platform
Dataloop, the Herzliya-based startup whose platform streamlines the process of preparing visual data for machine learning, raised $11M in Series A funding led by Amiti Ventures, with F2 Venture Capital, Nextleap Ventures, SeedIL Ventures and OurCrowd. The company also announced a previously undisclosed $5M seed round. Dataloop’s customizable SaaS platform for AI data annotation and data management weaves together human and machine intelligence to accelerate vision AI. It allows more businesses to embrace AI by covering the entire data preparation cycle, from training and data labeling, through to automating data ops, customizing production pipelines, and powering enterprises successfully in production. “Many organizations continue to struggle with moving their AI and ML projects into production as a result of data labeling limitations and a lack of real-time validation that can only be achieved with human input into the system,” Dataloop CEO Eran Shlomo tells TechCrunch. “With this investment, we are committed, along with our partners, to overcoming these roadblocks and providing next generation data management tools that will transform the AI industry and meet the rising demand for innovation in global markets.”
D-ID: Israeli face recognition tech lets the show go on
Many of us can work from home during lockdowns, but actors have been among the worst hit by the pandemic. D-ID’s software was developed to preserve your privacy in an age of ubiquitous facial recognition, but as Hollywood and TV shows shuttered because of coronavirus, the company has tweaked its technology to allow actors to manipulate still images of their faces to look realistically like they’re talking, smiling and making other facial expressions. “We created an advanced feature that enables actors and productions to film movies from home and save a lot of time and money on filming days,” Gil Perry, D-ID’s co-founder and CEO tells Israel21c. In an era where the sensitive biometric data in our faces needs protection from the rapidly-growing facial recognition market, D-ID’s identity protection makes organizations’ photos and videos unrecognizable to facial recognition tools. The company’s software renders digital images impenetrable without distorting the image itself. Its AI-powered solution can mislead facial recognition software into mislabeling an image or even changing its appearance.
Innoviz reveals new automotive Lidar sensor with higher performance, lower cost
Innoviz creates high-performance, solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software that bring vision to the automotive, drone, robotics, mapping and other industries to enable safe autonomy. InnovizOne, the company’s automotive-grade sensor, will get its first volume production applications with BMW in 2021. Now it has developed InnovizTwo, which the company says will feature similar, or improved performance, but with a 70% reduction in cost, for installation in lower-cost vehicles. “OEMs are generally willing to pay for level three premium cars up to $1,000 for lidar,” Omer Keilaf, CEO and co-founder of Innoviz, tells Forbes. “For level two, the barrier is much lower so they’re talking about $400 to $500.”

The Worst Way to Respond to Any Market Crash
We all know Mondays can suck. I got a flat tire yesterday. The third one this year. No fun.
But that’s nothing compared to 33 years ago when Monday really sucked for investors.
On Monday, October 19, 1987 the stock market plunged the most on record – dropping more than 20%.
In a single day.
Why bring up this depressing memory? Because heading into the anniversary of Black Monday yesterday, many investors feared another nasty crash was imminent.
Thankfully, they were wrong. This time. But another double-digit, single-day crash is inevitable.
So how should we respond? The data is undeniable…
History Repeats, Stocks Rebound
Many stock investors are too young to remember Black Monday. Or for that matter, how the stock market responded afterwards.
Meanwhile, the rest of us just might forget. But we need to know!
You see, the funny thing about sudden selloffs is they typically trigger a kneejerk reaction from investors to sell everything to try to avoid even more losses.
Big mistake. You see, sudden selloffs are typically followed by sudden rallies. Especially on Mondays.
- Since the bull market began in March 2009, there have been 19 selloffs on Mondays of 2% or more for the S&P 500 Index, according to Bespoke Investment Group.
- 15 out of 19 times, the index bounced back the very next day. By an average of 1%.
- And 17 out of 19 times, the S&P 500 bounced back by the end of the week. By an average of about 3%.
Remember, these are only the averages.
In some instances, the S&P 500 rebounded as much as 5% the very next day and almost 9% within a week.
Rest assured, this isn’t merely a current bull market phenomenon.
As Justin Walters of Bespoke explains, “Whether you’re looking at just the current bull market or over a longer period of more than 25 years, the day and week after a big Monday decline have usually been very positive.”
Indeed! So anyone mashing the sell button after a sudden Monday sell-off actually made matters worse because they had to pay up to get back into the market.
How much they had to pay up depends on how long they waited.
Not Merely a Case of the Mondays
It’s important to note that the tendency for stocks to rebound quickly isn’t isolated to this bull market or even Mondays. It universally applies.
Again, the data is undeniable.
As you can see in the chart below, following stock market corrections, defined as a decline of 10% or more from a recent 52-week high close for a major market index, prices recover to prior levels within four months on average.
Freaking out and running scared into cash is never a smart response to a sudden market sell-off.
Instead, we need to control our emotions and learn to at least hold tight.
Fair warning: it takes guts. Every fiber in your body is going to scream, “Sell, sell, sell!”
Why? Because we’re hardwired to detest losses and the threat of more losses can be overwhelming.
Making matters worse, every headline is going to serve as confirmation bias of the same.
Consider the headlines plastered over the entire front page after the 1987 crash:
- Does 1987 Equal 1929 (New York Times)
- A Repeat of ’29? (Wall Street Journal)
Nothing like conjuring up Depression-era thoughts to freak people out of their investments, right?
Don’t fall for it, though.
In fact, armed with this data, I’m confident that after you weather a few sudden selloffs, you’ll emotionally evolve and actually rejoice at an opportunity to buy the dip, instead of freaking out about the selloff.
That’s how I responded in March 2020, along with hundreds of my readers.
In fact, I issued over a half-dozen buy recommendations in the midst of the sell-off that went on to rally 105%, 347%, even 950%, in as little as 25 days.
Bottom line: Panic selling after a double-digit market crash is the wrong move 100% of the time. Instead, our trained response should be to buy the dip. Sure, it might not always work out the very next day. But in the long-term, it does.
