Looking toward the future
CVCs often act as a strategic sensor for their corporate parent and are quick to identify the next big technology trend.
A strategic CVC mandate is more nimble than a hybrid or financial mandate in that it provides some latitude to balance key objectives, expand into adjacent markets and explore frontier markets.
LPs still trending
The number of CVCs in this year's survey rose slightly compared to 2021 with 55% of all CVC firms taking an LP position.
Corporates are investing in traditional VC funds for a whole host of reasons – 27% of respondents took LP positions to gain exposure to new adjacent markets, 26% to get in on early-stage deals and 25% to get exposure to new geos.
