Andrew Romans captured wisdom from interviews with 100+ Corporate Venture Capitalists (CVCs), independent VCs, CEOs of startups, bankers and lawyers to write the definitive book on the topic of CVC. Masters of Corporate Venture Capital is packed with invaluable advice about how to best raise capital from CVCs, unlock synergies of partnering startups with large corporations for rapid international growth and avoid potential disasters and other dangers related to CVC.

More than 20% of all Venture Capital financings include at least one CVC and thus startups need to understand this previously misunderstood area of funding.

Corporations need to establish their own CVC arms to access external innovation and learn how to bring this inside via VC investing, partnerships and M&A. We work in a very complex ecosystem and this book captures stories that bring the complexity to life with simple lessons.

This book is for:

• Entrepreneurs

• VCs

• Angel investors

• Family offices

• CVCs

• Corporates thinking about launching a CVC

• Anyone advising startups.
