Our submission weighed heavily on the fantastic work the team developing Global Corporate Venturing, Global University Venturing and Global Impact Venturing has been doing over the past few years to connect innovation capital sources and drive innovation forward on the global stage.

But, ultimately, the award reflects the support, insights and talent of the global innovation community and the members of the Leadership Society and Global Innovation Venturing so thank you for the past 11 years and for building a brighter future given the first GCV Institute course this week went really well with a sell-out programme.

The prospect of in-real-life and hybrid digital events looks increasingly positive and the award caps a perfect week of webinars, roundtables and pitches delivering value and greater awareness.

News, reports, data continue to build awareness and insights within the community. And a nice opening mention in the WSJ pro newsletter this week makes it definitely one to remember.
