Value Beyond Equity
Portfolio Companies

As Intel's eyes and ears in the local geography, Intel Capital EMEA is investing in companies developing leading-edge technology. Through these investments, Intel is able to understand evolving usage patterns and requirements of technology across many different cultures and languages.

Intel Capital investments include Internet infrastructure content and services, wireless and communications, technology and optical. Focus areas include extending Internet usage through investments in companies building next generation networks both wired and wireless as well as in companies providing a wide-range of Internet related product offerings.

Examples are local language portals or culture-specific content, Internet based information services such as streaming broadcasts, software developers providing tools, utilities and management software for Internet applications and value add services to mobile operators, portals and cable/satellite TV companies.


Value Beyond Equity

Intel Capital portfolio companies benefit in ways that go beyond Intel's financial contribution. Intel brings significant technological expertise around the Internet, computing platforms and networking, and has the ability to work with other industry participants to help foster technology standards. In addition, Intel may diffuse Intel-developed technology to a portfolio company. Intel also offers a worldwide marketing presence. Within the Intel Capital portfolio, there is the opportunity to network with a diverse range of companies whose technologies or business models may be complementary.

Intel also gains in ways that go beyond immediate strategic and financial goals. By working with companies that are "exploring the art of the possible," Intel engineers are exposed to a broader set of ideas that will impact the kind of products and technologies that we develop in the future. This can benefit Intel, companies in which we invest and, ultimately, the customer who uses our products.
