New Counter Club Event: What's Really Going On Out There?
Join our next event where we'll cover early 2021 CVC data with our friends at Pitchbook and decipher what's happening in the corporate VC world.
CVCs have held strong throughout the pandemic, remaining resilient when doubters expected contractions. Through Q3 2020, CVCs participated in around 25.8% of completed deals in the US, which represented more than 51.5% of deal value (Source: Pitchbook). More than 1000 different corporate entities have invested in at least one VC deal in the US every year since 2014, participating in an average of 51.1% of deal value each year during that time frame (Source: Pitchbook).
Join us next month as we cover the latest CVC data from the Pitchbook & NVCA Q1 Venture Monitor Report. We’ll host Pitchbook Analyst Kyle Stanford and several members of our Counter Club community who will provide their take and commentary on what’s really going on out there.
The format will be slightly different for this event, more conversational with our CVC panel as we decipher the data and get into the weeds.
Join us on April 22, 8:00AM PT
