with Lasting Benefits
There were 53 billion euros invested in CVC in 2018 alone. Two years later, and that figure is only rising (CB Insights). Executives see it as a one of the main mechanisms to build new businesses according to their unique corporate strategies, used alongside M&A, R&D, corporate accelerators, and other strategies.
M&A was once known as the tool to expand existing businesses by creating inorganic growth. However, M&A is limited in terms of the scope of material opportunities it can attract. It also carries the risk of mission drift and not delivering value to the core business.
As the practice of innovation management proliferates worldwide, leaders are combining internal business ideas with the fast pace and efficacy of the start-up world. Getting this right- without creating chaos – entails first and foremost fostering a culture of entrepreneurship.
It means providing opportunities for employees to pursue new ideas and putting processes in place for harvesting, funding, and launching new ventures.
During the session, we were able to:
– Explore the frameworks for making internal entrepreneurship initiatives a success
– Discuss real-life examples of new venture / NewCo building
– Hear about the challenges and best practices of building NewCo’s in established companies
How to Innovate for the Future by Using Corporate Venturing Models
FOUNDATION: A User Guide to Corporate Venturing and Open Innovation
TOPIC DEEP DIVE: How Corporate Venturing can Lead Mature Companies to Fail or Prosper into 2040
Are you making the most out of Open Innovation?
Any business that embraces the power of open innovation carries risks like uncommitted partners, unforeseen changes in the business context, and other threats that could deal a deadly blow to the collaboration.
With the advent of digital technologies, all industries are shifting faster than ever, resulting in increased volatility, complexity, and ambiguity amongst value chain relationships and market forces. Corporate venturing enables companies to profit from the waves of technical change and to bring lasting benefits to their organizations. It is emerging as a powerful tool for uniting technological, business, and financial interests, invoking strong commitment from all parties – typically, startups and corporates, but increasingly between corporates in the form of new joint ventures.
During this session we were able to:
– Review the basics of corporate venturing in the broader OI context
– Study recent literature from IESE Business School regarding corporate venturing
– Help companies understand how to setup and improve their venturing wings
– Show how venturing arms can be one of the keys to adapting their current businesses to their future core businesses – always staying relevant
