Last week at the Intel Capital Global Summit, Intel CEO Bob Swan and Forbes publisher Rich Karlgaard took the stage for a wide-ranging conversation on the conference theme of disruption and data.

Swan described Intel Capital’s role as a combination of strategic, financial and cultural. He said Intel can provide scale and technical insights that companies may not get from other venture capitalists. In exchange, Intel benefits from the outside perspective on technology trends that its portfolio companies bring.

“We view our portfolio companies as one of those ways culturally that we can stay extremely contemporary with those that are doing massive disruptive things out in the tech world,” Swan said. “We’d like to think that those companies are better off as a result of hanging out with us, and we know that we are better off as a result of hanging out with them.”
