How Kanyata works

It's simple for you to raise funds, and for your investors to trade their your stocks and bonds online.

How can I raise funds through Kanyata?

Kanyata is an online platform where you can create a crowdfunding-style campaign to sell stocks and/or bonds to the Israeli and international public. Your initial campaign is called an CSO (Crowd Stock Offering), and you can sell stocks or bonds in your company, up to 6 million NIS (per year). The public can buy your stocks and bonds right online, using their credit card or bank account. After your CSO is concluded, the stock or bond holders can trade their equity with one another, through the Kanyata platform.
In the past, yes. But now, governments in Israel and around the world are allowing companies to sell equity directly to the public, and have made it legal to do so.
Yes. Most companies can raise up to 4 million NIS, but under certain conditions, you can raise up to 6 million NIS.
Every individual can trade up to ₪10,000 per year. Individuals who earn at least ₪350,000 per year can invest up to ₪10,000 on a single CSO, and up to ₪20,000 per year. Individuals earning between ₪350,000-₪750,000 can invest up to ₪30,000 per year. Companies and institutional investors can invest without limit.

Click here to contact our Customer Care team. They'll reach out to you (generally within 24 hours) to tell you a little bit more about Kanyata, and see how we can best help you. You'll then be able to create your free Kanyata account online, and start creating your CSO of stocks or bonds.

Investing in Stocks and Bonds

When you think of Kanyata, think of us as a combination of a crowdfunding platform that helps you to raise funds, and a second market, where people can trade stocks with one another. In practice, once you've sold stocks and bonds to the public, they can trade their equity with one another, right through the website.
When you create an CSO, you set the value of your stock or bond. But just setting a price is easy - selling is harder. To convince potential investors to participate in your CSO, you need to show the public that the price of your stock or bond is fair and realistic. You'll do this through your marketing materials, but also by describing your company in great detail.
After your CSO is successful, Kanyata will allow traders to trade your equity amongst themselves. Our system will then show the equity price that best reflects how your stock or bond has been traded.
Once you've bought a stock, either in an CSO or as part of a trade, you are its legal owner. In practice, the stock is passed to our trustee attorney, who verifies the identity of the new stock owner (and does other legally required due diligence), and once completed, registers the new stock owner with the Israeli authorities.

Social Responsibility

All companies on Kanyata are required to describe the ways in which they consider themselves to be a socially responsible company. This could be their environment policies, workplace equality standards, minority board representation, charitable donations, or any other ways that show socially conscious behaviour. In addition, we encourage all companies launching CSOs to donate 1% of their stock to the IsraelGives Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and strengthens the non-profit sector in Israel.
