The 2021 State of CVC Report

Why did we do this?

  1. Create most comprehensive data set of self-reported data (106 CVC funds). This is not secondary data.
  2. Synthesize the data into a compelling narrative with juicy takeaways. CVC leaders could relay these best practices and trends to the HQ mothership and achieve their own goals.
  3. Present more transparent and educational data to the broader ecosystem: founders, traditional VCs, industry so we neutralize classic misconceptions about CVC investors.

How Do We Fit In & Why Us?

  • Many face the same frustrations and opportunities, no matter what sector they invested, the size of their fund or check sizes they write.
  • For nascent CVCs there is a desire to learn from others that have perfected the art before them, but many don’t know where to start
