Corporate venture capital (CVC) differs from independent venture capital (VC) in several ways when it comes to how it nurtures innovation in new firms and what metrics a CVC fund regards as important. Whereas the objective of a common VC fund may simply be to get an attractive financial return, CVC funds are generally more focused on the strategic fit of any potential investment with their companies’ own strategic orientation.

At the European Chamber’s Corporate Venture Capital Conference 2019, managers of CVC funds, advisers and academics will talk about what makes a CVC unit successful, what deals these units are looking at in their respective sectors – information technology and life sciences, among others – and what they think about this sector’s potential in China.
