Why Corporations Invest in New Ventures – TDK Ventures Nicolas Sauvage

TDK Ventures Nicolas Sauvage

"We already have amazing business groups in TDK that know exactly what they need to do with existing products in existing markets. And we have R&D teams and M&A teams that know how to expand: whether it's new markets, existing technology or new technology in existing markets. But exploration is actually going into the megatrends that are strategic for the corporation: new market, new application, new use cases, new technology. And that's the mission of TDK Ventures."

– Nicolas Sauvage, president of TDK Ventures

Venture Capital and Leadership – 37 Angels Founder Angela Lee

37 Angels Founder Angela Lee

“Corporate VCs and corporations have many, many more definitions of success. And so, yes, a lot of the times their goal is to make a financial return, but [other times] it might be to maybe replace some R&D; it might be for acquisition targets; it might be to get advice on a certain new technology. What I always do when I work with corporate VCs and consult with them, I always say, ‘You really have to define what success means and you cannot have seven different definitions of success.’ And then once you know what that is, we will work backwards from there."

– Angela Lee, founder of 37 Angels

Where Ideas Take Flight – Glasswing Ventures' Rudina Seseri

Glasswing Ventures' Rudina Seseri

"To be at the forefront of innovation, the dynamics in the partnership between large enterprise players and startups is very important. And it’s important because from an enterprise perspective, you want to continue driving topline and margin, and the tools and the platforms that emerge will help you get there faster and a lot more effectively."

– Rudina Seseri, Managing Partner at Glasswing Ventures
