Join us for an exclusive breakfast seminar on 16 August 2018 (Thursday) where Dr Frank Siegfried, Teaching Fellow at Alliance Manchester Business School will be conducting a complimentary masterclass on how the application of corporate venture capital can help your organisation to stay relevant in an era where Singapore’s economic structure is set to drastically evolve.

Driving Innovation through Corporate Venture Capital

Singapore is transforming into a knowledge, service and innovation-based economy. By 2035, the economic structure will be significantly different from what it is today. And there are no alternatives – the emergence of China and de-globalisation attempts in the US create an unprecedented urgency to stay relevant. That means revision of existing business models and developing new or different product and service portfolios. 

A promising approach to staying relevant is the application of Venture Capital by companies in order to accelerate internal R&D, gain access to relevant technologies and create synergies with existing core businesses. Global brands such as Apple, HP, Google or Cisco use Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) to continuously integrate differentiated customer experiences. 

Join us in this seminar to uncover insights on what your company needs to do, how CVC is managed and how they can benefit your organisation in the long run.
