Michal Geva is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Triventures and brings over 20 years of experience in medtech and digital health in Israel and the U.S. She co-founded Triventures in 2009 to provide what was then missing in the ecosystem- a deep understanding of commercial integration of innovative technologies into the healthcare system. Triventures was one of the first funds in to focus on digital health in Israel and Michal was the first woman to found and manage a venture capital firm in Israel. Since founding Triventures, Michal has grown the fund into a multi-stage investment platform and industry leader.

With a hands-on approach, Michal is involved in all the fund’s major decisions, leads investments and serves as an active board member in the majority of the portfolio companies.

Michal holds a B.A from The College of Management Academic Studies.
