Session Description

09:30 – 10:15 Panel: Corporate Venturing, Innovating in the Shadow of a Financial Giant

Large corporations are not competing with 3 other large players in their vertical for market share anymore. Today they are competing with a universe of well capitalized startups, for whom it is easier to raise cash than most large corporations. Over $1.5 trillion was invested in venture capital deals, worldwide between 2010 and 2019. These new players can grow fast gaining users at a loss or focus their efforts to steal the most profitable parts of the incumbents business using better technology. How are Banks responding to this competitive landscape? Partner, build, buy?
