|As a newly private company, Dell is now the world’s largest startup, and we understand what it takes to grow from an inspired idea to a success story. As you begin the same journey, Dell Ventures is here to support you every step of the way. |
Dell Ventures was created with the goal of investing in and supporting new businesses that align with Dell’s expertise and strategic direction. We collaborate with cutting-edge entrepreneurs and investors who share our vision in the following technology areas:
|By investing in these areas, Dell seeks to team with the best and brightest visionaries in the technology areas we know best, and to help them achieve their potential.|
By partnering with other top VC firms (and strategic investors), and by taking either a leadership or advisory role, Dell Ventures has the flexibility to deliver exactly the support you need, where and how you need it.
We invest in early- to growth-stage companies in our targeted areas and function as strategic investors and board advisors. We typically invest $2 million to $5 million into a round, with flexibility to invest $15 million or more. We prefer to co-invest with other VC firms, and can lead investment rounds when appropriate. We’re showing our commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation with the Dell Strategic Innovation Venture Fund, offering a capital commitment of $300 million.
Dell Ventures offers capital, but it also brings comprehensive market knowledge, deep technical expertise and strong financial know-how and resources to help young companies succeed.
|The Dell Ventures portfolio includes dozens of companies that span our focus areas. For strategic reasons, we do not publicize many of our investments, but here are a few of the innovative companies we’ve supported.|
