Eclipse Ventures has opened Eclipse Fund IV, a $500 million venture capital fund twitch it says will continue early-stage investing in the digital transformation of its essential industries. This includes bedrock sectors of our economy such as manufacturing, logistics and supply chain, transportation, construction and healthcare, as well as more modern industries like advance compute, cyber-defense, and energy and electrification.

This brings Eclipse’s total assets under management to almost $2 billion.

Founded in 2015 by Lior Susan, a veteran of an elite Special Forces unit in the Israel Defense Forces, EclipseVenture provides founders with the full-stack expertise and operational discipline necessary to successfully build industry-redefining companies.Eclipse says that it helps entrepreneurs build companies to boldly transform the industries that define and propel economies.

Lior says that he founded Eclipse Ventures to meet the “unique and unmet needs of entrepreneurs building full-stack start-ups.” He is particularly excited to work with founders who want to bring the full-stack approach to legacy industries and build digital bridges to the physical world. Lior believes that complex problems require multidisciplinary solutions, and he likes to partner with audacious founders with big ideas.

Prior to launching Eclipse, Lior was Founder and General Partner at LabIX, the hardware investment platform of Flextronics. LabIX brings together startups, OEMs, and technology partners across the entire hardware ecosystem. At LabIX, Lior led investments in companies across: energy storage, wireless/infrastructure, 3-D optics, additive manufacturing, and robotics.

Lior also co-founded Farm 2050, an AgTech Collective, with Innovation Endeavors to address the global food challenge. Prior to LabIX, he was part of the founding team of Elementum, the Flex proprietary SaaS platform, which was later spun out. Before moving to Silicon Valley, Lior was a serial entrepreneur in Tel Aviv, where he helped build Intucell, which was sold to Cisco in 2012.

Lior Susan said in a statement that, “The need to modernize old-line industries has been our north star since we started Eclipse in 2015, and over the past year, the pandemic has only accelerated this transformation. There is no going back — this is the exact moment to rebuild and reinvent these industries.”
