Join Global Midwest Alliance, program host Polsinelli and sponsor, Square 1 Bank, for the 4th Midwest Corporate Venturing Conference, a half-day program focused on issues that matter to the corporate venturing community in the Midwest.
Leading experts will share their insights into the role of corporate venturing as an enabler of innovation and growth, and share thoughts on the following:
> What is driving the surge in corporate venturing?
> How is corporate venture used for strategic innovation?
> What do corporations expect from their venture arms?
> How to achieve a strategic return as well as a financial return?
Our fireside chat keynote presentation will cover perspectives from senior management at companies that are setting up new corporate venture arms.
The Innovation Panel will present the technologies of six early-stage companies in the lighting, battery, drone interceptor technology systems, food and agriculture industries. These are revenue positive companies that are targeting partnerships and market opportunities for multinational or cross-border innovation to achieve success in the U.S. and international markets.
The Corporate Venturing Panel will include insights into opportunities for corporate leaders and entrepreneurs to discuss ways to optimize their partnerships.
Attendees will meet and interact with associates, friends and new contacts, including experts, Midwestern venture capitalists, CEOs and entrepreneurs, who will provide a perspective on the future of corporate venture programs and their increasingly strategic value to innovation.
