San Jose, Calif. (February 10, 2022) – Jolt Capital, a leading European private equity firm investing in B2B frontier-tech companies, is pleased to announce that they have become a member of Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA), the voice of the global semiconductor industry.
“Europe is currently putting together ambitious plans to stay in the race for global semiconductors leadership. The recent Covid-induced crisis on electronics supplies for automotive and other industries has moved the topic at the top of the agenda, and private capital must get involved even further to scale the future European champions,” said Pierre Garnier, Managing Partner at Jolt Capital. “Joining the GSA now is perfect timing for us, and we are really looking forward to sharing our expertise of the complex semiconductors value chain with the members of the Alliance.”
Since 2011, Jolt Capital has been deploying its growth funds towards deeptech scaleups across Europe, some of them requiring heavy capital equipment for factories and production lines. The proprietary AI-platform Jolt.Ninja acts as an invaluable tool to support the team in their sourcing, due diligence operations and portfolio management. In 2022, Jolt Capital IV will be actively looking for a handful of companies with substantial revenue, well positioned in the future of the semiconductors industry, and ready to scale to global leadership.
“We are very pleased to have Jolt Capital join the GSA,” said Jodi Shelton, co-founder and CEO of GSA. “Jolt Capital brings a wealth of industry knowledge to the Alliance and we look forward to their contributions to our industry events, interest groups and resources. As the GSA gains new members, we are ultimately supporting and enhancing the global semiconductor ecosystem.”
As a member of the GSA, Jolt Capital will benefit from the unique neutral platform provided for collaboration, where global executives may interface and innovate with peers, partners and customers to accelerate industry growth and maximize return on invested and intellectual capital.
