Intel Capital is rounding out the year having spent $344 million on companies with plans to spend about another $10 million by year-end.
At the corporate venture capital firm's annual Global Summit, which recently wrapped its two-day run in Huntington Beach, Calif., news came that the company spent $62 million on 16 new startups ranging from the microprocessor and mobility worlds to big data and wireless.
"It's a very broad range, [a] very big area and we're investing in the entire continuum there," said Intel Capital President and Intel Executive Vice President Arvind Sodhani.
The startups join a portfolio that totals nearly 400 companies, with Intel Capital investing at a rate of roughly 55 companies annually.
The portfolio so far this year has seen three IPOs and 19 M&As, down slightly from the 30 to 35 M&A deals it typically sees.
