Corporate Ventures

The Corporate Venture Lab at the wiSource Innovation Think Tank for Leading Executives brings together some of the industry’s top venture fund managers, investors and subject matter experts in Corporate Venture financing. 

Corporate venturing is a form of financing that provides funds to early stage, emerging companies with high growth potential, in exchange for equity or is the practice of directly investing corporate funds into external startup companies.

Together we discuss new trends in funding early stage companies and how they will affect market segments and fund opportunities in the immediate future. We also come together and create an elite consultancy for member companies benefit.  Top executives from VC firms, Family Businesses, Funders, and corporate launch professionals help companies understand new trends and opportunities and the best way to utilize new funding models and options. Our group helps start-ups, mid-size and large privately held companies extract the most value from their funding ecosystems and relationships. We save our clients time and valuable resources, effectively reducing their search time and funding costs and help them find better suited capital.
