Our investment focus is early stage startups and we engage in highly selective investing. We focus on products, services and enablers that leverage Deutsche Telekom’s unique network platform and data assets and which benefit from Deutsche Telekom’s access to and know-how of markets and customers. We’re particularly interested in startups with a focus on harnessing high speed and low latency connections (think: 5G, Edge computing); any startups working towards intelligent and connected life and work (think: NB-IoT/LTE-M, Smart City, Smart Home, Industry 4.0); those startups harnessing the data economy to improve data quality and to make smarter decisions (think: AI, analytics, automation). Finally, we’d also be excited to hear from any startups working on frontier technology that has the potential to disrupt Deutsche Telekom’s core areas of focus and the surrounding areas.You can find just the startups we’ve invested in below.
The next gigabit society is coming, enabled by future connectivity. We are looking for startups working with massive broadband connectivity (5G) or ultra low latency (Edge), campus networks, smart narrowband technology (LTE-M, NB-IoT) or further enhancing their solutions with AI.
Soon, everything around us will be connected, from our homes to our workplaces and beyond. We’re excited to work with startups in the areas of smart home, voicification, entertainment, AR/VR, consumer IoT (tracking and tracing, wearables) and industrial IoT (efficient manufacturing, logistics, smart buildings)
