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.

Over the last 40 years, China has witnessed progressive liberalisation of its capital markets and its contribution to the world economy, with China now being the world’s second largest economy. China’s capital markets have continued to develop and open up at an unprecedented pace. Meanwhile, a significant step taken in 2017 to further open up the capital markets was allowing foreign institutional investors in the CIBM to have access to onshore FX risk hedging arrangements.
