How to (Not?) Work with a Corporate VC

In partnership with Wharton San Francisco, HP Tech Ventures is hosting a talk and reception on the Wharton San Francisco campus.

   

HOW TO (NOT?) WORK WITH A CORPORATE VC
Thursday, March 14, 2019

For anyone who is a founder today or might be one in the future, as well as for investors, this evening promises to answer many of your questions and make you aware of the pros and cons of corporations as strategic partners and/or investors.

Corporate VCs (CVCs) are on track to invest a record setting ~$50B in US companies alone in 2018 and account for a growing share of total VC deals (20+%). CVCs are active throughout the world and across all funding stages. As a result, understanding how and when to work with CVCs has never been more important. Come hear Wharton alumni and HP Tech Ventures Partner, Angelo Del Priore, and Mitchell Weinstock, serial entrepreneur and Partner, explain how:

  • CVCs differ from financial VCs
  • To negotiate critical term sheet items that are most important to CVCs and their implications to you today and down the road
  • To leverage relationships with CVCs beyond just the capital they can provide
There will be a short presentation followed by a Q & A, drinks and light appetizers.
