STMicro launches Corporate Venture Capital Fund

ST New Ventures will invest in technology, product and service start-up companies serving emerging markets where semiconductor is key.
The acceleration of the pervasion of semiconductor has led ST to create a venture fund which will invest in technology, product and service start-up companies, preferably at early stage, to understand in advance emerging markets for which semiconductor is key. Healthcare, Cleantech and Smart Infrastructure are among the main areas of focus.

In addition to financial investment, ST New Ventures will bring to its portfolio companies a deep comprehension of the semiconductor industry – from technology to products, manufacturing and markets worldwide – and the experience of how semiconductor can enable new applications.

The fund will co-invest with financial and corporate venture capitalists and has been designed accordingly.

ST New Ventures will be an ST fully owned subsidiary headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, led by Loïc Liétar, Managing Director.

“ST has always been pursuing aggressively emerging trends which have eventually led to major new market inroads for the company. Where and how silicon could be used today can go well beyond its recognized markets and applications. ST New Ventures is a formidable tool to bring a different angle to ST’s perspectives” said Liétar, Managing Director, ST New Ventures.
