What is IBM Ventures?

IBM Ventures is IBM’s corporate venture investment arm, investing in select high-growth partners who are providing innovative technologies to the enterprise. We invest in early-stage enterprise software companies. By nature, we are thematic investors as we look to invest in startups relevant to the future of IBM. To us, that means investing in broad trends across data & AI, cybersecurity, quantum computing, and sustainability.
