Webinar: How Corporate VCs Can Spur Innovation

The Engie New Ventures, Redaptive, and Connected Energy Case Studies

webinar description

This webinar will discuss how the venture arm of corporates and early-stage companies can engage, as well as the benefits and challenges of doing so. Developing new technologies in a mature market, being able to iterate fast, launching new products that may change the status quo, and exploring new markets is not an easy task for any of the sides. So how can entrepreneurs and corporates collaborate in a beneficial way? We will start with an exploration of Engie New Ventures' invests in and partners with early-stage companies, as well as how the fund complements existing activities and resources to spur internal innovation within ENGIE. Then we will examine two case studies to illustrate that – Redaptive and Connected Energy.
