ABSTRACT
This article explains how business organizations can boost potential while minimizing risk. Corporate venturing goes for the jugular. In effect, the underlying strategy of corporate venturing says: if non-organic corporate growth is largely based on innovation, the engine for innovation is the creation of an efficient connection between technologists, funding, and scale is its fuel. Many large organizations find that a highly effective way of advancing a corporate venturing initiative is to make judicious private equity investments in carefully-selected technology start-up companies. Generally, it is good advice to suggest to a major organization that it diversifies its investments across a range of technology companies to increase the probability that some of the innovations will deliver profit.
