Deutsche Telekom Strategic Investments was founded in 1997. It has since then invested in young companies that demonstrate economic and technological synergies with the Deutsche Telekom business units as well as above-average growth potential. Its head office is in Bonn. It is supported and complemented in its activities by T-Venture of America, Inc. in San Francisco and in Seattle. Investment activities focus on Europe, the United States and Israel.
T-Venture has two evergreen funds: Products & Services Fund, Processes & Infrastructure Fund.
T-Venture has roughly 720 million Euro under management, of which 280 million Euro was raised in July 2012 for new portfolio companies. T-Venture invests from Preferred Seed through mezzanine stages, 250k - 40 million Euro. T-Venture contributes to, co-leads, and leads investment rounds. Over 70% of the 100+ active portfolio companies have a commercial engagement with Deutsche Telekom.
T-Venture has an exit-oriented venture capital investment strategy. Successfully nurtured and exited companies include BelAir Networks, CoreOptics, Danger, Demandware, Flarion Technologies, Jajah, Starent Networks, Voice Objects, Mobilisafe, Percello, Ruckus Wireless, and Ubiquisys.
