The game of venture capital, corporate venturing and Silicon Valley.

The pace of innovation is accelerating, changing markets and creating opportunities and challenges. Venture capital and Entrepreneurs are partnering to create ventures of astounding value, global impact and financial returns.

Major corporations are threatened as never before. Changing opportunities that exceed their internal capabilities require a rapid response.

At the same time, Entrepreneurs are creating new ventures with new technologies and business models that enable the rapid scaling these corporations need, disrupting traditional value chains and markets.

Through ‘open innovation’ platforms such as Corporate Venture Capital, Venture Capitalists are investing in these start-ups, allowing them to experiment, innovate and rapidly scale. Once the purview of Silicon Valley, this has become a truly global phenomenon.
