OBN Senior Executive Club – Lunch: Corporate Venture & Emerging Companies Summit, Cambridge (Invitation-only)
In response to demand from members in the East of England and London, OBN’s Senior Exec Club Cambridge will be held at lunchtime. OBN is inviting a number of Corporate Venture Capital firms, including some of those that have invested in our members’ organisations, to make presentations and network with members.
According to published reports, CVC investees garner a higher percentage of licensing deals and collaborations, achieve more M&A and more IPOs. In the past decade CVCs participated in ~10% of investment rounds in biotechs, but this now exceeds 20%. In some VC portfolios it exceeds 70%. The statistics suggest that CVCs pick investments well, their investees get pharma validation and active deal management, and the outcomes are better.
So join us for lunch; it could be the most valuable lunchtime networking event you’ve attended.
See you from 12:00 onwards!
