T-Venture is the venture capital company of Deutsche Telekom, an integrated telecommunications company with more than 180 million customers and roughly 58 billion Euro revenue in 2012 -- more than half of that from international operations.
T-Venture 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.
T-Venture intensively accompanies companies and acts as their long-term partner. The objective of the co-operation is a valorization of the company followed by a successful sale of the shareholding after five to seven years.
T-Venture's shareholdings also include the distribution and marketing as well as research and development networks from Deutsche Telekom. Portfolio companies receive nationally and internationally pro-active support.
T-Venture is one of the most significant corporate venture capital companies worldwide, with a 15-year track record of over 190 successful investments, over 20 of which were high-flyer outperformers.
