About Deutsche Telekom / T-Venture

One of the most significant corporate venture organizations worldwide, T-Venture is the venture capital arm of Deutsche Telekom. Regional emphases lie in Europe, USA and Asia. With headquarters in Bonn, Germany, its activities are complemented by T-Venture of America, Inc. located in Foster City, California and Seattle, Washington. T-Ventures financing activities closely correspond to DT's three strategic business segments (broadband/fixed network, mobile communications and corporate customers), and address cross-divisional topics. T-Venture intensively accompanies its portfolio companies acting as their long-term partner. The objective of each co-operation is win-win value enhancement followed by a successful sale of the shareholding after five to seven years.
