Elevator Pitches At Intel Capital Global Summit
The Intel Capital Global Summit, held last week in Huntington Beach, Calif., gave Intel Capital, the investment arm of the processor vendor, a chance to not only show off its investment portfolio but also help those companies drum up more investment, customers and partners.
The Intel Capital portfolio includes companies ranging from startups to profitable companies in nearly every part of the IT industry. Intel has invested $10.7 billion in 1,257 companies since 1991, including $250 million in 45 companies so far this year. Intel has seen 201 of the companies in which it has invested go through an IPO, and another 308 have been involved in a merger or acquisition
Here's a look at the elevator pitches of some of the companies currently in Intel Capital's portfolio, some of which could be the next big thing.
