||Many of Silicon Valley's most successful companies have capitalized on their relationships with strategic partners and investors, taking advantage of key customer relationships and sharing development costs for new products. In addition, leveraging global strategic investors can help accelerate a young company's international presence critical in today's global economy. However, working with a strategic investor for a growing company also has its risks with respect to investment terms and the liquidity event.|
How can early stage companies and venture capital investors that co-invest with strategic investors better manage their relationships with these investors and partners while leveraging their global expertise and presence?
VC Taskforce's Corporate Venture Capital special interest group has formed a panel of some of the leading global corporate VCs to address some of these issues and provide insight to early stage/growing companies and venture capital investors.
