'The T-Corporate Venture fund invests in business models with overall importance for the entire group and its busines units. The goal is to open up new technologies for the use in Deutsche Telekom in the sense of an innovation transfer - window on technology - and to thus guarantee the sustainable, value-oriented growth of the group. Both, funds as well as direct investments are undertaken for this purpose. Furthermore, T-Corporate Venture realizes spin-offs as a commercialization option for technologies of Deutsche Telekom. The participation in the High-Tech Start-Up Fund, Germany, is complementary to that. The start-up fund finances young, innovative high-tech companies from the start-up phase onwards.'
