VC Investors for Autonomous Vehicle Companies - Part 1
The most active investors in autonomous vehicle technology, according to Pitchbook, are Trucks Venture Capital, Motus Ventures, Sinovation Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Maniv Mobility, Intel Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, Shunwei Capital, Samsung Venture Investment, NVIDIA GPU Ventures, NEA (New Enterprise Associates), Draper Associates, Cottonwood Technology Fund, Alrai Capital, Airbus Ventures. Eleven of these companies have invested in companies identified in the request criteria. The requested data has been compiled in the attached spreadsheet.
To identify the venture capital firms that have invested in one or more of the identified autonomous vehicle companies, I've consulted Pitchbook, Crunchbase, and other startup and investment data portals. I then visited each investor's website to confirm the investment. In terms of identifying specific partners involved, I consulted Crunchbase, as well as company websites and news articles regarding the investment.
Pitchbook offers a list of the most active investors in autonomous vehicle technology, so I have cross-referenced this list with the list of companies provided in the request criteria. The Pitchbook article lists the following top investors with the number of relevant total investments:
"Trucks Venture Capital (8)
Motus Ventures (6)
Sinovation Ventures (5)
Qualcomm Ventures (5)
Maniv Mobility (5)
Intel Capital (5)
Andreessen Horowitz (5)
Shunwei Capital (4)
Samsung Venture Investment (4)
NVIDIA GPU Ventures (4)
Draper Associates (4)
Cottonwood Technology Fund (4)
Alrai Capital (4)
Airbus Ventures (4)"
Of these fifteen companies, eleven have invested in the companies identified in the request's criteria. Shunwei Capital, Samsung Venture Investment, Sinovation Ventures, and Cottonwood Technology Fund have not invested in any of the companies analyzed in this request.
Culling through these investors' activities and cross-referencing them with the requested list of companies consumed the scope of a single Wonder request. But in our follow-up response, we will research the individual companies identified in the request details to further flesh out the details of the requested spreadsheet.
In conclusion, Trucks Venture Capital, Motus Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Maniv Mobility, Intel Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, NVIDIA GPU Ventures, NEA, Draper Associates, Alrai Capital, and Airbus Ventures have all invested in companies listed in the request criteria. Details regarding these investments have been compiled in the attached spreadsheet. Additional investors in the autonomous vehicle sector will be examined in our follow-up response.
