Teddy Sagi is a visionary entrepreneur and businessman with interests ranging from software and technology development to online security, property, e-commerce and co-working.
Teddy was born in Tel Aviv in 1971 and founded Playtech before the age of thirty. Playtech is the world’s leading online gaming software company and was listed on the London AIM market in 2006; six years later, it was successfully listed on the London’s main market. In 2016, Teddy divested and diversified his business focus; since then his stake has been reduced through several transactions with the final stake being sold in November 2018.
Teddy launched two other AIM-listed online services companies – Kape Technologies PLC, an internet security and digital distribution platform and SafeCharge, an online payment service provider. In August 2019, Teddy’s entire interest in SafeCharge was sold to a Canadian payments tech company, and as a result of the acquisition, SafeCharge was delisted from the LSE.
In recent years, Teddy has invested into the London commercial property market via a notable investment in Market Tech Holdings. Market Tech Holdings is the owner of the vast majority of London’s iconic Camden market including Camden Lock Market, Stables Market, Union Street Market, and Camden Lock Village.
Market Tech was previously a main market company listed on the LSE, since privatised and delisted following a successful and mutually beneficial takeover.
Teddy Sagi’s interest in Market Tech Holdings is held by LabTech Investments. LabTech Investments creates urban communities that provide coworking, living, commerce and leisure, enabled by technology, powered by people and underpinned by a multi billion property portfolio. The company owns and operates a global property portfolio, concentrated in urban centres such as London, Tel Aviv and other main European cities. London is at the heart of LabTech’s vision and strategy, with an existing portfolio of 2 million sqft of property across Camden, Holborn, and Kings Cross and Hackney, four of the city’s most vibrant areas.
Teddy lives with Yael Nizri, the 2006 Miss Israel, and they have four daughters and a son together. They have homes in Tel Aviv, London, Berlin and Cyprus.
Teddy Sagi has long been known as a technology visionary and entrepreneur. Now, with London as his family’s main business base, he’s transforming the way we work, live and network.
