CVCs significantly expanded their operations and investment activity during the 2008 financial crisis, will the current COVID environment provide similar opportunities to get into deals and expand their footprint in Silicon Valley? Or will tight balance sheets result in less corporate spending overall and as a result a substantial slowdown in deal flow? Startups may want to also reconsider corporate investors to the extent traditional venture capital retrenches.

Most CVCs focus on later stage deals which may also become out of favor in the current market. Healthcare CVCs may be more active given the increased interest in life sciences opportunities. Please join our panel of experts as they assess the current market environment for corporate venture capital.

Hosted by Morgan Lewis partner John Park, the CVC forum is a monthly program featuring a discussion of topics relevant to corporate investors and corporate development executives.
