COMPANY PROFILE
Growth capital resides at the intersection of private equity and venture capital. It is a common and
attractive investment category in most Western countries – but is minimally existent in Israel today. This
gives Goldrock Capital a unique position in the Israeli market.
Goldrock Capital’s growth equity strategy is a risk-managed class of private equity. Investment targets
typically are strong businesses with identifiable risks and attainable return targets. Goldrock invests in
businesses with annual sales of at least $5 million and significant further growth potential. The Goldrock
team adds value to these companies wherever possible - sourcing additions to management, strategic
planning and identifying exit opportunities to help management grow the company faster - generating
shareholder value. Goldrock does not depend on leverage to generate or accelerate returns thus
reducing the risk of the portfolio as a whole.
The company is currently deploying Goldrock Israel Growth I, a $25 million fund, dedicated to growth
investments with a typical investment size of $1-$3 million.

COMPANY LEADERSHIP:
Goldrock Capital is led by Daniel Goldman and Darren Rockman, who have a combined three
decades of private equity investment experience in Israel and abroad. Daniel has a broad professional
background that includes venture capital and corporate finance. Darren has a strong corporate legal and
management consultancy background.
