Today Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) plays an important role in the Venture Capital industry. The number of Corporate Venture firms grew from around 380 in 2011 to more than 1800 active CVCs in 2019, contributing to more than 50% of the deal value in the US in 2019. There are different corporate motivations and hence models for CVCs to invest, from pure financial return to highly strategic considerations pertaining to the business of the corporation. Our panel of investors will share their investment strategies and business rationales. Whether you are an entrepreneur looking for funding or a business considering to create a CVC, this panel will give you valuable insights into the diverse flavors of Corporate Venture Capital investing and why CVC is here to stay!

This is the first panel discussion of a VC event series. GABA is planning nine events in 2021 – three panel discussions and six “Meet a VC” events in-between.
