“In addition to Deutsche Telekom’s continued support and trust, we are delighted that two additional investors have joined our existing investor base, contributing a substantial amount of capital. This is an important milestone in DTCP’s development from a single LP into a multi LP technology investment platform. Our first venture and growth fund’s track record since inception in 2015 has helped us attract top-tier corporate and financial investors, and we are delighted to welcome our new partners,” said Vicente Vento, cofounder and CEO of DTCP. “The larger-sized fund will enable us to increase our involvement with top-tier deep-tech software companies in our investment scope, and the new collaboration with SK Telecom will allow us to expand our geographic reach into Asia.”
DTCP has already deployed capital in five companies from its second-generation fund. It led the Series F financing in cloud platform company Fastly, which recently went public on the NYSE (FSLY), and joined financing rounds in employee communication and engagement platform Dynamic Signal, light-touch sales platform Pipedrive, cloud and data center security innovator Guardicore, as well as a US Web and mobile analytics company.
