Stay relevant, competitive, and adaptable to change by relentlessly innovating.

CVC connects established businesses with entrepreneurs as a supplement to existing innovation practices as a means to accelerate growth and identify disruptive risks and opportunities. 

"Large companies are now involved in about a third of all venture deals and more than three-quarters of the Fortune 100 are active in the VC space."
(McKinsey, November 2022)
In today’s era of volatility, there is no other way but to re-invent. The only sustainable advantage you can have over others is agility, that’s it. Because nothing else is sustainable, everything else you create, somebody else will replicate.
— Jeff Bezos

CVC strategies connect established firms with leading entrepreneurs to implement original ideas more effectively. Corporations access early-stage technologies, capitalize on emerging trends, and open new markets.

Venture capital is a proven approach to complement internal innovation programs. It allows corporations to align with external capabilities that, due to cost or lack of internal resources, would otherwise be unavailable to them.


Corporate innovators who deploy venture strategies leverage a portfolio of small bets and fill identified gaps in their capabilities, products and market coverage.

CVC can be utilized as a service by companies for several strategic reasons, providing both financial and non-financial benefits.

Access to Innovation:

CVC allows companies to tap into external innovation and emerging technologies by investing in startups that are often at the forefront of innovation. This helps the company stay competitive in its industry.

Market Insight and Trends:

Through CVC investments, companies can gain valuable insights into market trends, consumer behaviors, and emerging technologies. This information can inform the company's own strategic decisions and product development.

Brand Enhancement:

Active participation in the startup ecosystem through CVC can enhance a company's brand image. It signals to the market and stakeholders that the company is forward-thinking, innovative, and committed to staying at the cutting edge of its industry.

Access to Deal Flow:

CVC arms companies with access to a broader range of investment opportunities and deal flow. This access can be particularly beneficial when seeking investment targets aligned with the company's strategic objectives.

and Flexibility:

CVC provides companies with a scalable approach to innovation. Rather than relying solely on internal R&D efforts, companies can adapt and scale their innovation initiatives based on market dynamics and emerging opportunities.
