About the book Corporate Venturing
The book is not the hype story of how cool startups are and why you should invest in them with a fund or set up an accelerator. Corporate Venturing is so much more than CVC – corporate venture capital.
The aim of this book is to provide insights in the different strategies and tactics to accelerate innovation and growth through collaboration, as well as plenty of cases as examples where these methods are successfully applied. This is not a book for people that are looking for complex innovation theories around venturing. Rather it’s a no-nonsense, ready-to-apply comprehensive guide for creating and reviewing your corporate venturing strategy as a strategic instrument to thrive in this fast-changing world.
The book will provide guidance, insights, perspective and inspiration for anyone who’s interested in corporate venturing as a strategy to accelerate growth. Whether you are a large corporate or an upcoming player in the market.
