Micron Ventures

Micron Ventures primary objective is to assist Micron Technology, Inc. (“Micron”) in supporting the long-term needs of its customers. As a key component of Micron’s innovation strategy, early stage equity investments provide Micron with access to technologies, markets, applications and key innovations influencing the semiconductor space.

Whether it is a simple investment or a more extensive partnership, Micron Ventures uniquely tailors its collaboration to address the specific needs of its portfolio companies. Ultimately, success is predicated on the ability of Micron and its co-investors, to assist growth companies in becoming determining forces within their respective marketplaces.

About Micron Ventures

Launched in 2006, Micron Ventures is authorized to invest $100M over a ten year period in early stage technology companies whose technologies are salient to the strategic interests of Micron. Specifically, Micron Ventures is targeting next generation memory solutions, system-level solutions, semiconductor processing solutions, imaging technologies, embedded applications, and other disruptive semiconductor technologies.

Benefits to Portfolio Companies

Portfolio companies will benefit from Micron’s financial support and, where appropriate, receive access to world-class technology and process expertise, research and development capabilities, business relationships, strategic insights and market intelligence.

Technology

As a leading supplier of DRAM, NAND, NOR, and innovative next-generation memory devices, Micron has extensive experience in the product lifecycle of semiconductor products. Where appropriate, portfolio companies will be able to access our global team of semiconductor designers and process engineers for expert advice and guidance. Leveraging this knowledge could be instrumental in providing critical time-to-market and financial-planning advantages for companies that are designing leading-edge solutions.

Visibility and Validation

One of the biggest hurdles for a growth company is establishing credibility for the company and its products or services. In most cases, portfolio companies will be able to reference Micron’s investment in order to source suppliers, engage customers and attract both investors and employees.

Business and Strategic Relationships

If applicable, Micron will promote portfolio companies within our extensive global network of suppliers, customers and technology partners. Portfolio companies may benefit from our close relationships with leading technology companies in areas such as telecommunications, computer hardware, consumer electronics, and semiconductor processing.
