CV Program Design for Resiliency and Impact

Today’s Corporate Venture Capitalists (CVCs) are playing an increasingly influential and high value role in the global investment ecosystem, participating in more than 25% of Venture Capital (VC) deals. It is, however, a challenging job. Corporate Venturing programs operate professionally in a complex set of interdependent ecosystems involving both internal and external stakeholders, with unique financial and strategic mandates. Integrating an understanding of the Venture Capital ‘rules of the game’ with an appreciation for the nuances and requirements of strategic investing is fundamental to CV program professionalism and impact.
