Moshe Sarfaty holds a dual degree in Economics and International Studies from Yale University, where he served as the first-ever Israeli captain of the varsity squash team as well as the president of the Shabtai Society. He has accumulated years of experience in investment banking, trading, business valuation, and venture capital funding, and he is a lecturer at higher education institutions in Israel and abroad. Before joining Aristagora VC, Sarfaty co-founded a green river-logging start-up in Belize and served as a managing partner at Krypton VC, which focused on seed-stage technology investments. He began his career as an investment banker in the capital markets division at Bank of America and Merrill Lynch in New York City, where he conducted financial and market analyses for corporate clients, focusing on their investment-grade ratings, debt structure, and overall market performance. He now uses that skill set to mentor promising start-ups from around the world, supporting them from inception to initial revenue stage and helping them to attract later-stage funding.
