Corporate Venturing Unit
Focused on building and launching new digital businesses that create transformational growth.
Corporate venturing is the art, science and discipline of investing in and commercializing entirely new businesses that create future growth and competitive advantage. It involves spearheading growth by entering new adjacent customer segments, leveraging emerging technologies and innovating around business models.
As experienced entrepreneurs, strategists, venture investors and digital product leaders, we believe success relies on creating a balance between the speed and agility of the entrepreneurial approach and the business discipline to align new ventures to the strategic objectives of your company.
Our team helps build businesses across multiple industries that are ambitious and forward-thinking yet grounded in sound business rigor. We all share a passion for digital technologies, new business models, disruptive innovation and their power to transform the business landscape.
How we turn ideas into new-growth businesses
Digital disruption is rewriting the rules of business by dramatically expanding the limits of what’s possible
Digital impacts nearly every aspect of businesses across all industries: customers demand more choice and convenience, brands play a bigger role, costs are dramatically lowered, distribution and service channels are radically altered and competition can come from out of nowhere overnight. Digital has let loose an avalanche of strategic possibilities for how to compete. The very fabric of previously stable industries is transformed as a result of unrelenting change — resulting in existential threats for some companies and huge opportunities for others. To survive and thrive, incumbents must evolve their core areas of focus while also pursuing entirely new opportunities. To disrupt, develop and differentiate, startups need insights and awareness to make a lasting mark.
