In sporting circles, 2007 marks the 30th anniversary of Israel's first triumph in the European cup, when Maccabi Tel Aviv's Tal Brody uttered the immortal words "We are on the map and we will stay on the map." Israel is also on another no less important map - the Forbes Magazine Midas map. The Forbes Midas list which this year includes Shlomo Kalish of Jerusalem Global Ventures, Erel Margalit of Jerusalem Venture Partners and Yossi Sela of Gemini Israel Funds, ranks the top dealmakers among the world's venture capitalists. The three Israelis ranked 39th, 69th and 89th, respectively. Margalit made a tremendous forward leap from 88th place the previous year. Kalish, a former fighter pilot and a former lecturer at the Recanati School of Business at Tel Aviv University, heads a $200 million seed fund group that invests in communications, information technology and life sciences. His major successes over the past year related to Power Design, Saifun Semiconductor and Allot Communications. The success of Margalit, the founder of JVP, is also attributed in large measure to Allot while that of Sela, the managing director of Gemini, to both Allot and Saifun.
