Welcome to the December issue of the Corporate Venture Connection.
In this issue, we feature an interview with Mary-Kay James, Managing Director of DuPont Ventures and Chairwoman of the NVCA Corporate Venture Group Advisory Board. Coca-Cola provides insights into the Coca-Cola Founders Platform, the company’s new model to engage entrepreneurs, and we take a look back at NVCA’s Annual Corporate Venture Group Fall Summit.
You will also find our standard set of robust resources — including the latest research on corporate venture investment from NVCA, new job openings in corporate venture and upcoming events.
We also invite all corporate venture practitioners to participate in helping Global Corporate Venturing (GCV) track the corporate venturing industry by completing this survey. The results will be used for the World of Corporate Venturing 2015 Report to be published in late January, which will be the definitive guide to the sector.
We launched this publication in September with a mission to connect the corporate venture community by sharing industry best practices and insight from the industry’s leaders. As we continue to grow, we invite you to share your thoughts and feedback with us.
Warm regards and happy holidays,
Managing Director, Motorola Solutions Venture Capital
NVCA CVG Communications Committee Chair
