Global Corporate Venturing Symposium in London on May 21-22, 2013

The Global Corporate Venturing Symposium brings together over 200 of the top people in corporate venture capital from around the world in London. Click here to see the agenda and to register.

The theme of the Symposium on May 21/22 in London this year is Powerbrokers, as the golden age's generation of corporate venturers dances with start-ups and integrates ideas and opportunities into their parent businesses.

The organisers want you to come away from the Symposium with at least three practical outcomes:

  • 5 new contacts who can help you take your business to the next level as partners or customers.
  • A portfolio company previously unknown to you, looking for the next round of financing and that sparks your interest.
  • A better understanding of the issues and challenges faced by corporate venturers so that you can help solve them.

"A great event, content was really good, liked the key note presentations. Also awards and dinner were excellent."

Martin Grieve, Managing Director, Unilever Corporate Ventures writing about the 2012 Symposium.
