“Whenever we do anything – whether it’s technology or a new business model – we have to measure the customer service impact.”

Chrissy Taylor, President and Chief Operating Officer – Enterprise Holdings, September 2018  

Enterprise Holdings’ acquisition and corporate venture-capital strategy continues to focus not only on accelerating industry-leading transportation solutions, but also enhancing customer satisfaction in a rapidly changing marketplace. 

In 2007, Enterprise purchased the National and Alamo brands – its largest acquisition to date – and significantly increased its airport presence and global travel industry leadership.

Since 2008, Enterprise has spent almost $2.4 billion making acquisitions and corporate-venture capital investments or commitments in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, Ireland, Spain, Brazil and China.

Acquisitions include car rental companies, carshare operations, vanpooling, technology platforms and franchises. For example, in 2019, Enterprise Holdings acquired San Francisco-based Deem – an innovative managed-travel technology platform that includes Deem Work Fource and Deem Ground Work, a suite of online booking and travel technology products for business travelers, travel managers, travel-management companies and suppliers.

Enterprise Holdings Ventures

"We value the expertise a strategic investor brings to our business and have had a fantastic experience working with Enterprise Holdings’ venture fund over the last two years (since our Series A round). We [are] excited for Enterprise Holdings to make an additional investment as both share our long-term strategic vision."

Don Sharp, Chief Executive Officer – Coolfire Solutions, October 2018

Prompted by the digitization of the economy and our industry, we recognized the changing face of transportation and launched a corporate venture capital strategy in 2013. Today, Enterprise Holdings Ventures is primarily centered on mobility, travel technology, fleet management and logistics, customer experience, as well as autonomous and electric vehicle (EV) technology.

Although Enterprise Holdings Ventures targets emerging companies, it explores any opportunity that benefits customers. That’s because our integrated global network offers unique scale, resources and infrastructure – including managing the largest and most diverse privately-owned fleet in the world, with 2 million vehicles and 10,000 rental locations operating worldwide.
