This has been a difficult year for startups and entrepreneurs, mainly because they were finding it extremely difficult to raise enough capital to turn their vision into something tangible. That is why it was important for me to post this two-part article, with plenty of creative ideas regarding entrepreneurship funding. I hope you’ve already had the chance to read the first part. So, as promised and without further ado, here is the second one.

Family and friends

The people closest to you are usually the ones who will have the most faith in you and your vision. It is completely legitimate to approach…


Here’s a number which shows how harsh reality can be for startups and their founders — about 9 out of every 10 new startups fail, never reaching profitability. Many entrepreneurs and dreamers do not realize how winding the road to success is, especially those with no prior experience. One of the most difficult stages is actually raising enough money to make the dream come true.

A smart investor is the kind who knows how to spot an opportunity from afar. Now, when I say ‘afar’, I mean really, really far, all the way to the easternmost part of the planet — to the Land of the Rising Sun. That’s right, Japan has recently become a mecca of innovation and entrepreneurship, and if you’re an investor yourself, it’s not too late to get in on the action.

My name is Ofir Bar, and I write this based on my years of experience in technological startup investments. For years, Japan has been known as a tech kingdom…


We bade farewell to 2020 just one month ago with high hopes that life is going to be better in 2021. So far, sadly, things are not returning to normal as quickly as we had expected. Lockdowns are still a part of our lives, as are travel restrictions. Though mass vaccination is underway, the death toll of the pandemic is still on the rise worldwide, and the end isn’t really in sight.

While the real estate market has generally been stable over the course of this disease, the amount of international real estate investments did drop significantly. That can be…


Well, that was much faster than we had expected. Who would have imagined, just a year ago, that by 2021 humanity would have already managed to develop a vaccine against COVID-19, and to start immunizing itself? While there are many reasons for optimism, regarding the light at the end of the pandemic’s tunnel, for real estate investors it might be a bit too soon to rejoice.

While the global economy is starting to shake the dirt off of its shoulders and to assess the damage caused by the virus, there are a few things that real estate investors need to…


As we enter the month of December, it’s time to start summing up 2020 in real estate. My name is Ofir Eyal Bar, and I’m a real estate investor with over two decades of experience around the globe, especially in North America, Europe, South Africa, and the Far East. Let’s talk about top trends in real estate this year — the trends that are going to stay with us for quite a while, or so it seems. And no, we’re not going to mention COVID-19 even once (and that’s not going to be easy).

After decades of a continuous shift…


2020 is far from over, but it’s already safe to say at this point that it has been a bad year, economically speaking. The COVID-19 and, more precisely, the financial downfall that came with it skipped only a few sectors — and the real estate investment sector, unfortunately, was not one of them. When you’re thinking of how to make ends meet by the 30th of the month, you are less inclined to close deals worth thousands of dollars, and when physical mobility is restricted, it is very hard to seriously consider properties for investments. What can we say? …


If you’ve been around the world of real estate investment for a while, you probably know by now that almost everyone around you is a self-proclaimed expert. While there are some people who have worked hard and truly deserve the status of being a professional advisor, the internet is sadly filled with many novice voices giving dodgy tips and tricks. My name is Ofir Eyal Bar and I’ve been a real estate investor for quite some time now. …


The first steps of getting involved in the real estate business are some of the most exciting and because of that, it would be critical for you to start with your right foot. Education is at the root of every successful career and without it, you’ll end up making a lot of rookie mistakes, postponing the great results we’re all expecting after hard work.

I am Ofir Eyal Bar, a real estate investor, and digital marketing entrepreneur, and in this post, I would like to share with you some resources that personally I find as helpful sources of knowledge to…


With the COVID-19 pandemic still keeping economic activity subdued globally, investing in real estate becomes a bigger challenge, especially for those that are in their early stages. To keep profitability and reduce downsides, if that occurs, they need to take some extra measures in how they design a real estate investing strategy. I am Ofir Eyal Bar, and today I will share 4 valuable tips on how to do that, to help other people navigate one of the most uncertain periods in our lifetime.
