The virtual state of corporate venture capital today – TechCrunch

Quick Summary

When the going gets tough, it’s common for some corporate VCs to head for the hills. Global corporate venture deals fell from a total of 580 in April/May of 2019 to 486 in the same period this year, according to Global Corporate Venturing. 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. I know that Merck Global Health Innovation Fund (MGHIF) remains fully committed to “doing” venture. 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.
