DTCP is Deutsche Telekom’s investment management group. With approximately $2 billion under management and advisory and a portfolio of over 70 companies, DTCP provides venture capital, private equity, and strategic advisory services to the technology, media and telecommunication sectors, according to Crunchbase.

Jack Young, Partner and Head of Venture Capital at DTCP, explains its investment in Aryaka. “The SD-WAN market has turned a corner finally, and the time is right,” Young says. “Aryaka has built a global network backbone, which is a significant differentiation from the other SD-WAN vendors in the market.”
