Fund: Intel Capital

Posted by Frequent Traveler on 2012-03-19

PUBLIC:

Intel Capital invested in my company’s Series B financing in 2007, which was our final round of funding. They remained an investor through our M&A exit in 2011. We found the efficiency of the pitch process with them to be on par with other venture investors. In the term sheet and definitive legal documentation, Intel insists on certain provision that other VCs would not require, but that did not prove to be a problem in closing the financing or at any point thereafter.

As has been mentioned below, Intel does not take board seats, but they did attend almost all of our board meetings. Their input, both in and out of board meetings, was usually constructive.

Intel makes substantial effort to help their portfolio companies with introductions to prospective customers and partners. I think they do a very good job with this – almost certainly better than anything any other VC could do thanks to Intel’s worldwide reach. That can be a real benefit for a venture-backed company seeking to reach out to large public companies.
