The corporate investing landscape is rapidly evolving. Companies have gone beyond sourcing innovation from suppliers or customers, or simply investing in startups. The range of options has expanded to include a multitude of approaches, from venture investing to incubators, accelerators, and various open innovation models. Importantly, however, the approach to external innovation must be driven by the strategy, and supported from top management and even the board. Partner Peter Bryant will lead a discussion with Anna Catalano, former CMO of BP and current board member of both Towers Watson and Kraton Corporation. She will provide her perspective and insights and share how those companies are using corporate venturing to fast-track innovation.
