Trimble has launched a new venture fund that will invest in early and growth-stage companies that align with the technology giant’s work in the construction, transportation, agriculture and geospatial industries.

The fund, called Trimble Ventures, will start with $200 million allocated for investments and focus on companies with the potential for technology-enabled innovation and disruption in digital transformation.

The technologies and solutions may be related to hardware and software applications; artificial intelligence; augmented, virtual and mixed reality; autonomy and robotics; blockchain; the Internet of Things (IoT) and analytics; and sustainability.

Companies that secure funding will also have access to expertise and insights via the partners at Trimble Ventures, and to customers, markets and distribution.
