Join 500+ business leaders from the corporate venturing and wider high growth business ecosystem for Global Corporate Venturing’s 10th Symposium. Taking place at London’s Leonardo Royal hotel during global attention on the UK during the COP26 climate change discussions, this year’s event will look at how venture has grown and professionalised through corporate venture capital (CVC) over the past decade and what might come in the next one to tackle the sustainable development goals we need to build back better.

It has been clear that companies that use CVC as part of a broader innovation strategy have outperformed peers in terms of strategic and financial performance, and this is increasingly been recognised by stockmarkets.

The question coming out of covid-19 disease is: once the strategy becomes widely known and available, and corporate venturing goes from being a competitive advantage to have to a necessity to avoid being left behind, how will the emphasis shift to better performance and effectiveness to show relative gains?

The leading corporations will use the symposium to connect with the top VCs through the Global Innovation Venturing network chaired by Scott Sandell, managing partner at NEA, as well as the world’s top-ranked universities as part of a programme celebrating how innovation can meet capital.

Our 10th anniversary Symposium will include an invite-only gala dinner at St Paul’s Cathedral on 3 November and celebrate the leaders who have taken the industry to unprecedented heights and positioned innovation capital as the opportunity to make the world a better place.
