Intel has reiterated its commitment to China’s tech ecosystem, revealing they have injected $67 million USD into eight startups across China, including Ninebot, the company that acquired Segway earlier this year.

The company announced the full list of startups in a statement released on Thursday. Other focus areas for the investment include OpenStack solutions, smart device hardware and IoT hardware.

Intel has made a series of investments in Chinese startups since opening China-side operations. This August they announced a $60 million USD investment in Chinese aviation and drone company Yuneec, following investments in other global drone makers. In January 2014 they pumped an undisclosed sum into Chinese crowdfunding site Demoday, which focusses on hardware development. Back in 2013 they also partnered with Baidu to launch free app testing centers in China with the intention of speeding up the development process for startups.
