Forming a New Venture Arm For CVCs, investors, strategy and corporate development executives October 30 | 9:00-2:00 Morgan Lewis| 1400 Page Mill Road | Palo Alto Is Financial-First the Future of CVC Funds? Corporate venture arms of companies come in all sizes and shapes. Some are tightly coupled to the business, others make it a point of being independent of the parent company. CVC objectives span the entire range from being primarily strategic to being "financial first", along the lines of traditional institutional VCs. * Why have Google, Cisco, SAP, and Deutsche Telekom all sponsored "financial first" venture groups?   * What does a financially driven fund bring back? to the parent in terms of strategic value?    * Are financial-first corporate venture funds more attractive to entrepreneurs than strategics? To other investors /VCs for co-investment?   * Are the advantages of financial-funds sector specific, and stage specific?   Is this the shape of things to come? Panel Moderator: Eric Ver Ploeg Managing Director, Venture CapitalDeutsch Telecom Capital Partners John Park helps venture capital and corporate venture capital clients structure and implement early and late stage investments. He also represents private and public companies providing general corporate and strategic advice on financings, partnerships, joint ventures and M&A transactions, as well as inbound, outbound, and cross-border transactions.
