Leveraging Corporate, Strategic Partnerships and Investments

Market leaders continually need to find new innovations from outside as well as inside their firms if they’re going to stay in front. Corporations may be able to exploit resources and complementarities with their existing lines of business, giving them—potentially, at least—a strategic edge that private funds lack. Learn about the key fundamentals of successful corporate investing programs, alliances and commercialization process from some of Silicon Valley’s leading Corporate Partnerships and Venture Funds.

What is the ideal outcome – partnership, acquisition, IPO or what? What technologies and deals are most attractive to Corporations right now?
