What will I learn in this course?

Learn CVC with a VC

Corporate venture capital (CVC) is fast becoming a must-have, not just for technology companies but for any large company. A new wave of disruption is sweeping across industries. Venture funded start-ups like Uber and Airbnb appear to come out of nowhere to threaten traditional players in the transportation and hospitality sectors. The rapidly falling cost of creating and distributing game-changing products and services creates both serious threats and huge opportunities for established players. If large companies are not deeply integrated into the start-up and venture capital enterprise ecosystem, how will they successfully innovate and compete in this fast-changing environment? In the US, 50% of Fortune 50 and 33% of Fortune 500 companies already have a CVC program. Corporates in SEA are starting to realize the benefits of CVC, both as offensive and defensive competitive weapons. But starting and successfully executing a CVC program is not easy; the median lifespan of CVC programs has been around one year, while generating returns from venture capital typically requires 5-10 years. ​ ​ ​ Corporates entering CVC face two main challenges: 1) understanding the fundamental venture capital process and 2) adapting this process to benefit the corporation. Expara’s Corporate Venture Capital workshops will enable corporates to do both: gain a solid understanding of venture capital and learn how to develop and execute a CVC strategy while avoiding the pitfalls that have caused so many CVC programs to fail. Here you will have an opportunity to sample some of the content from our full-length entrepreneurship courses and programs. Here you can view 7 videos and read 7 articles that are included in our regular programs. These samples should give you a flavor of the approach to learning that we take - based on our real-world experience in the SEA enterprise ecosystem for the last 20 years.
