DCMDCM Contact: Scott Alberts
DCM was established in 1996. DCM has $1.6 Billion under management. At DCM, we invest primarily in early-stage companies (and selectively in strategic late-stage opportunities) and apply our expertise in the following core technology sectors: Social and Gaming, Software and Services, Components, Internet Content/Digital Media, Cleantech, Communications and Infrastructure.
Typically we are the lead investor, but we will syndicate, co-lead or co-invest based on a company’s needs. DCM has made investments as small as $500K in very seed stage companies, but our usual initial investment is $3 to $7 million, with an equal amount reserved for future rounds. Our total investment in any one company is generally up to $15 million. We invest in North America, Israel, and Asia.
Within our clean technology focus area we have made investments in Abound Solar, NxEdge (solar), BridgeLux (LEDs), Enovix (energy storage), Miox (water), and Velox Semiconductor (efficiency).
