RDC – Rafael Development Corporation Ltd. is a unique company, blending seemingly contradictory disciplines into viable commercial products. Our core business is the identification and development of potentially valuable commercial technologies based on hi-tech defense technologies developed within Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. (www.rafael.co.il), enhanced with the financial capabilities of Elron Electronic Industries Ltd. (www.elron.com)
The company's experienced management team comes from various fields of hi-tech and possesses strong business and technological backgrounds. Together they form a unique group full of dedication, actively involved in all business aspects of the companies they help to create, while promoting innovation, inventiveness and professionalism throughout the entire life cycle of the company.
With our unique strategy and highly experienced management, RDC primarily identifies existing market needs, defines the technological concept of the solution, creates a valid business plan and finally establishes a new company which will develop the product or application. This approach keeps us focused and enables the companies we build to reach fruition and provide technological solutions with enhanced cost/performance ratio. Using Rafael’s relatively-mature technologies considerably shortens time to market.

We have two paths you can choose: The Partnership path, and the Royalty path.
If you are an entrepreneur that has an idea and you wish to build a company around it.
If you want an active role in the company and are looking for a real partnership, this plan suits you. We will provide you with funding, office space, all administrative services including legal, finance and HR, as well as sales and marketing services. In exchange for the investment and services, Navitrio will become a significant shareholder in the company and your trusted partner.
If you have a fantastic idea, but have no intention of building a company around it, this plan suites you.
If you already have a startup, or have a dream job, or are just not interested in building a company from scratch, but you still have a great idea that you want to profit from - that's O.K - we are interested in it. We can make your dream a reality - while making all of the investments, and taking all of the risk. In return, you will receive royalties from any profits the idea will generate throughout the company's life cycle.
We invest in what we call Digital Properties only. What this means is that we do not invest in hardware, inventory, etc. If it lives on a screen, in the cloud, or on the network, we’re interested. A SAAS platform, a social game, an eHealth initiative, an iPhone app, all interest us.
We invest and grow ideas that are focused on the US market, leveraging our substantial network in the US. Our executives have a deep understanding of the market, its behavior, the needs and interests of consumers there, and market penetration methodologies.
We invest in ideas that can become viable businesses. Your idea needs to generate revenue, and become profitable. Our strategy does not rely on building a technology with the hopes of someone buying it in the future – but building strong, viable businesses that can become independent quickly.
We embrace niche markets. We believe in the long tail, and know that especially in our target market, the US, even ideas that may seem very niche, can become strong, viable businesses.
and as such, we invest in ideas in which we become a significant shareholder. When we invest, we are in it for the long haul. With that, we bring to the table much more than money: people, facilities, infrastructure, etc. If this is something you are not comfortable with, we are not a good match for each other.
We are most interested in pre-Seed (aka garage) or seed investments. Because of our value add, we wish to partner with you from the very early stages, so we can help you build a product, or a service, that will have a high likelihood of becoming a stellar success.
