When you stop growing, you start dying

Corporations who want to grow and remain relevant, partner with us to drive insight, products, and new opportunities.

Corporates need ventures for insights and growth

Market research and R&D aren’t enough anymore.  There’s too much innovation coming from too many directions for internal teams to see and respond to it all.

And whatever idea a corporation wants to exploit, there are already ventures pursuing it with greater funding, focus, and flexibility.

But by engaging ventures, corporations gain strategic insights into emerging technologies and shifting markets, and enable new growth opportunities.

Most corporations engage ventures the wrong way

Although they recognize the need to work with ventures, most corporations don’t know how to go about doing it and stumble into “innovation theater” with hack-a-thons, pitch days, and Silicon Valley field trips.

These approaches don’t produce results because they’re short-lived and unstructured.

It takes an Ecosystem

The surest way to get real growth from ventures is to develop a bespoke ecosystem.

  • One corporation engaging a dozen or more ventures
  • Connected through small investments
  • Across multiple areas
  • All aligned to the corporation’s objectives and strategy

This approach establishes the breadth, scale, and sustainability needed for real collaboration and real results.
