Investing in the Future of Public Safety

Every investment we make is aligned with a strategic objective to achieve business growth, in addition to generating investment returns. We invest in compelling venture backed companies that present a strong alliance opportunity and extend Motorola Solutions’ vision of advancing mission critical communications and intelligence-driven solutions for our customers. We also are partners in an incubator (based in Jerusulem) which provides us with access to seed stage startups and entrepreneurs.

Working closely with our portfolio companies, we provide financial and strategic resources and support to sustain a business through start-up, growth and expansion. Along with our brand and channels, we provide vital business and technology assets to help manifest ideas into reality. Aligning internal corporate strengths with leading external innovations through investments helps Motorola Solutions Venture Capital drive profitable growth and build shareholder value.
