Corporate venturing units have to perform autonomously but be intensely rooted in corporate innovation strategy and connected to business units to unfold their full potential. Understanding internal and external deal sources and innovation hot spots, in terms of both market and technologies, are intrinsic to corporate venturing activity. Becoming a key player in corporate venturing requires governance principles and specific cultural dynamics that need to be embedded into the existing corporate environment.
Processes integrating internal and external parties, inspired by new venturing approaches, must be established. It is crucial that companies have a clear strategy in place to scout and invest externally in partners that will lead to expansion and technology growth. What we offer is insight into clear scouting techniques, methods to find and manage external partnerships, and actual case studies of partnerships that have moved technology forward with lower risk and decreased time to market.
This summit will bring together leaders of innovation and corporate venturing from companies that matter. It will offer cross industry insight and face to face opportunities to establish meaningful and lucrative partnerships. We will cover critical issues including:
- Analysing practices on how to expand to a new region to allow venturing penetration globally
- Strategic metrics: Success factors and measurement
- Improving your innovation rate and creating innovative opportunities
- Best in class approaches to position your company as an attractive partner
- Effective technology scouting efforts by developing technology leads
- Strategic licensing through technology scouting
- Optimising organisation structure to drive the innovation process
