Expanding Cisco Investments’ focus in Italy

Author: Vin Lingathoti

Cisco Investments is bullish on venture investments in Italy. In a recent Q&A in Italy’s Economyup. IT, I shared some details about Cisco’s investment strategy in Italy.

Cisco Investments, the corporate venture capital arm of Cisco, has 45 investment professionals across the globe. We actively seek investment opportunities in areas such as IoT, Security, Data Center, Big Data, Cloud and Enterprise Collaboration. Earlier this year, we invested €5M in Invitalia Ventures. To date, Cisco Investments hasn’t made any direct investments in startups in Italy, but we are betting on the Italian venture market and expect to make additional investments in the next 6-12 months. I look forward to sharing more in the coming year. Ciao!
