Corporations are playing an increasingly active role in entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world.
As technology keeps evolving across all industry sectors, corporations are dedicating teams and resources to find and invest in new tools and business models.
According to the National VC Association, in 2015 corporate venture investments hit a 15-year high in the U.S. totaling $7.5 billion in 905 deals with high-growth startups.
Access to disruptive technologies and new business models are among the motivations behind this trend. Moreover, some corporations are broadening their reach by creating global teams as strategy to participate in emerging markets and scale up their business through investments in startups.
IBM VC and Intel Capital are among the most active players in the Latin American region. Therefore, we invited Claudia Fan Munce, Managing Director of the IBM Venture Capital Group, and Alexandre Villela, Intel Capital Brazil Director, for an exclusive conversation on corporate venture trends in the region.
On March 22nd, join us to learn their strategy for the region and hear insights on key innovations that U.S. corporations are funding at home and globally.
