Engel: Vision and Financial Strength

Elenilto Group´s organization and outstanding track record are the fruit of Jacob Engel, an industrialist for more than four decades. He began amassing his wealth in real estate, including the construction of tens of thousands of residential units in emerging markets. His unique attributes are many, from recognizing opportunities and strategic vision for executing and marketing them, to his management of large budgets and substantial risk. As a result of his success, Engel has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in new ventures, often self-financing projects to enable them to materialize.  To date, many of Engel´s ventures have had IPOs in New York, London and Tel Aviv.

Recognizing the importance of innovation, Elenilto Group has invested tens of millions of US dollars in start-up companies in Israel and is creating funds for investing in international start-ups, as well.

Expertise and Relationships

Today, the company continues to pursue exciting new opportunities worldwide requiring highly-specialized professional expertise; extensive experience with large-scale investments and project management; and maintaining excellent relationships with national governments and regulatory authorities in more than 20 countries.
