Our Focus

Hewlett Packard Ventures provides expansion stage capital and exceptional support to the best enterprise technology startups focused on the Cloud & Data Center, Big Data and Security.

Cloud & Data Center
The cloud has brought powerful new capabilities in terms of business models, cost and deployment agility. Hewlett Packard Ventures is looking for partners who believe in an open and agile hybrid cloud that enables customers to more securely move, integrate and deliver applications across IT environments and meet the ever-increasing need to store and process data. HPE has been a consistent leader in defining next-generation computing platforms, and we are doing this again with the HPE Helion cloud platform, which is open standards and open source-based to deliver rapid innovation.
Today, sensitive information is everywhere – in cloud and big data environments, on mobile platforms, with employees scattered around the world, and, as the Internet of Things market grows, on even more devices than we could have imagined. At the same time, adversaries have become more sophisticated, organized and collaborative, making enterprise security needs even more complex. Hewlett Packard Ventures is looking for innovative startup partners who can provide security solutions that successfully thwart adversaries while allowing enterprises to embrace cloud, mobility and big data. HPE draws on decades of security experience to proactively defend against adversaries, helping enterprises predict and disrupt threats, manage risk and compliance, and extend their own security teams.
Big Data
Big Data
Organizations are under increasing pressure to extract valuable insights from the significant amount of data generated today. By maximizing the value of all relevant information – including human information, machine data and business data – organizations can identify new opportunities, deliver superior customer experiences, develop new products and manage risks and costs. Hewlett Packard Ventures is partnering with innovative startups to create an ecosystem that unleashes the power of big data. We do this through the HPE Haven Big Data platform which provides the foundation for organizations to become data-driven enterprises.
