It's no secret that corporations are struggling to keep up with the innovation pace of the market. They've been trying different approaches for the past decade, some more successful than others. Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) is becoming one of the usuals. According to CBInsights 2017 report, CVC activity is growing rapidly.
Most of this activity is being driven by new funds being open. An interesting fact is that the region that's pushing the growth isn't the US or Europe, but Asia.
And while the share of CVC deals is still small compared to their VC counterparts, the average deal size is considerably higher for CVC than VCs.
