Intel Capital, Intel Corporation’s global investment organization, reaffirmed its dedication to foster worldwide innovation with the announcement of seven new investments. The new deals, which span three continents and total approximately $25 million, were announced today at the 10th annual CEO Summit, Intel Capital’s gathering of portfolio company CEOs, corporate innovators, academics and thought leaders from around the world.


The new investments, almost all led by Intel Capital, include U.S.-based Joyent (cloud computing) and Active Storage (RAID storage systems for Apple® users), Korea-based Crucialtec (optical modulation technology), Taiwan-based Gudeng Precision Industrial Co (semiconductor front-end equipment manufacturing), Japan-based V-cube (Web-based videoconferencing systems), China-based Phoenix New Media (Web information portal) and United Arab Emirates-based NeuString (telco pricing analytics software).


“Innovation does not stop during economic slowdowns,” said Arvind Sodhani, president of Intel Capital and Intel executive vice president. “New technologies are the drivers of growth that help lead economies back to prosperity, and Intel Capital continues to be a leading investor in companies pioneering such advancement. These new and follow-on investments in companies at various stages of development and geographies demonstrate Intel Capital’s unwavering commitment to invest in technology innovation globally.”


At the CEO Summit Intel Capital also highlighted 10 new follow-on deals that have closed or have been signed pending satisfaction of closing conditions, demonstrating Intel Capital’s commitment to provide continued support for its portfolio companies. These deals include Argentina-based Vostu (social gaming), Israel-based Safend (endpoint security provider), China-based China Digital Video Limited (video equipment and network solution provider), U.S.- and China-based Verisilicon Holdings (design foundry), U.K.-based picoChip (baseband silicon for 3G femtocells and WiMAX infrastructure), India-based Financial Information Network & Operations Pvt.
