2012: A Year in Review

With 2012 almost behind us, now’s a good time to take a look back at the great year Intel Capital and our portfolio companies had. We invested over $300 million in 50+ new companies and completed 70+ follow-on investments, and the year isn’t over yet! Over half (59%) of our investments were made outside North America, in countries such as China, India, Vietnam, France, Sweden and Brazil. We even ventured into new countries including Ghana and Spain. As new companies entered our portfolio this past year, quite a few achieved the ultimate level of success for a start-up and exited. In total, 30 companies completed exits this year via an IPO or through a purchase or a merger. Some notable examples include AVG (NYSE), Vocera (NYSE), iMall (Naspers), Anobit (Apple), Gaikai (Sony), DynamicOps (VMware) and Perceptive Pixel (Microsoft). The photo above depicts some of these successful CEOs being honored at the 2012 Global Summit for their accomplishment. In all, thanks to everyone who contributed to making 2012 a good year for Intel Capital.
