October 19th, 2016 New York: Masters of Corporate Venture Capital
“It is fair to say that not all CVCs are able to keep their promise of adding value, but when they do, it is certainly one of the most powerful ways to accelerate the growth of a startup. Masters of Corporate Venture Capital is essential reading for entrepreneurs, VCs and CVCs.” —FREDERIC ROMBAUT, Managing Director, Cisco Investment; cofounder, Qualcomm Ventures & Director, Apax Partners
