Snapshot from local corporate venturer

 17.00 Discussion Panel: Autonomy in the Investment Selection Process
  CVC investment managers can form their own Investment committee or they may require approval from senior staff following their recommendation.
  • How does this affect the CVC’s ability to invest in SMEs that potentially disrupt the parent?
  • Are deals ever turned down because of “corporate sensitivities”. How do you handle this?
  • Is this balanced by the CVC being actively sought by target companies because they can help commercialise?

Nils Granath, Head of Investments, Division X, Telia Company
Jenny Gustafsson, Investment Manager, Saab Ventures
Stefan Tirtey, Managing Director, Commerz Ventures
