We started Touchdown to help transform corporations through professionally managed VC programs.
The biggest businesses in the world are under constant pressure from thousands of startups, creating a unique collaboration opportunity for these two ecosystems.
Venture capital provides not only financial return, but also insights that shape strategy, M&A, and commercial relationships with entrepreneurs. In exchange, corporations can dramatically accelerate the growth of startups.
We believe the benefits of venture capital are essential to the future of a corporation. Our partners, some of the largest companies in the world, agree.Learn About Our Partners
Keep Your Edge
The average company lifespan on the S&P 500 has collapsed by nearly 70% since the 1960s. But established corporations can use venture capital to plan for market disruptions, informing corporate strategy and showing you the future—with a profit center instead of a cost center.
