Breakout Session 2: Corporate Venture Capital: Practical Guidance For The Strategic Funding Alternative

“Ignoring corporate venture capital means bypassing 25 percent of venture dollars, not to mention strategic benefits like access to infrastructure, scaling expertise, and new partnership opportunities. This would be a very expensive mistake for many entrepreneurs!” – Claudia Fan Munce

Claudia Fan Munce, Venture Advisor at NEA and former Managing Director and Vice President of Corporate Development at IBM, will lead a discussion on CVC best practices for selling the value proposition of partnering with a CVC to entrepreneurs – incentives, retention and entrepreneur concerns.  Claudia will also review several professional development topics such as, how to be successful at your corporation and the best way to get the best value out of your time at a corporate venture unit.

Claudia’s recent case study, Corporate Venture Capital: The Strategic Funding Alternative, will be sent to attendees as a pre-read for this session.
