The value is the opportunity to meet with teams that are trying to solve really hard security and privacy problems. They have fresh, excited (and exciting) conversations about a major problem in security, they are energized by what they are hearing from potential customers, and they can't wait to change the world for the better. It's a real pleasure to be able to provide even the tiniest bit of influence and insight into their process.

GCP's high level of professionalism, immense support, and extensive financial experience is invaluable to us as we rapidly grew our startup. The knowledge, experience, and vast network both Arik and Kobi have are just some of the key value-adds GCP has brought to the partnership.

As a second-time entrepreneur, I knew I wanted to partner with a VC that would support me beyond the capital, especially at the beginning. Glilot has supported us from day 1 (ideation) and helped us get our very first customers via an abundance of market discussions with their network of C-levels prior to launching out of stealth. As an example, with their support, I was able to recruit a strong Advisory Board of CISOs for Ermetic.

Through Glilot specifically, I always know the technologies presented are well thought out and have a differentiated place in the market and therefore I give those demos enough time to fully grasp the product. Generally, Glilot's portfolio includes experienced entrepreneurs who inherently understand the dynamics of managing product scope creep, cultivating messaging, prioritizing R&D, and more.

There are few investors that are as sophisticated in cybersecurity and willing to take early-stage venture risk as Glilot Capital. We were lucky to have them as our partners from the very beginning and through to the acquisition by Palo Alto Networks.

I always felt that having a board member who is an entrepreneur was extremely helpful and made the communication more productive. Kobi's support was obvious, his advice and wide network of connections were instrumental in BlazeMeter's success, from the beginning to the acquisition by CA Technologies (now Broadcom) in late 2016.
