Eli Barkat

Chairman and Co-Founder

Mr. Eli Barkat, chairman and co-founder of BRM Group, is a prominent figure in the Israeli business and financial community, with more than 30 years of entrepreneurial, investment and business management experience. Eli excels at growing companies – providing hands-on strategic and management guidance from founding to exit.

In 1988, Eli co-founded BRM Technologies, an anti-virus software startup sold to Symantec. Leveraging this experience, Eli led the transformation of BRM into a top-tier private Israeli investment group, later expanding its initial technology focus to include other industries as well.

Under Eli’s leadership, the Group has been involved, either directly or via venture capital funds under its control, in some of the most prominent exits in the industry. These successes have reinforced both BRM’s and Eli’s status as a leading investment player in the Israeli business arena.
