Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) is the investment by large groups into startups.
It can be done directly, either via an internal fund or from the parent company; or indirectly, by investing in a VC fund or given a VC firm a mandate to invest in given verticals.
CVC has risen in recent years, now being present in almost one-third of all VC deals in most geographies.
Raising funds with Corporates, done right, is a good way to get more value than just the money. The most experienced players considerably accelerate their portfolio companies’ development thanks to the large array of resources available from the parent company.
