When the going gets tough, it’s common for some corporate VCs to head for the hills.

It remains to be seen how it will play out this time, but I believe corporate venture capital (CVC) will not only stick around, but also be a vital part of the innovation ecosystem going forward.

It’s hard to do venture when you can’t venture out into the world, meet founders and do diligence the way we did in the past.
