Experience & goal alignment
Our growing team has over a century of venture capital experience in every aspect of the business: we have invested at every stage, in every sector, and in nearly every geography—we’ve taken companies public, sold them, and (unfortunately) shut them down. Our model is designed to incorporate the best of financial and strategic investing, to maximize returns.
We deliver original thoughts, research, and insight on corporate venture capital and innovation through our Risky Business blog and our newsletter, The Huddle.
We focus on frameworks for understanding innovation trends, together with practical advice for implementing professionally run corporate venture capital & innovation programs.
