How can a corporation that has grown large stay agile and innovative? How can it detect emerging trends and embrace them – or even challenge them – especially when these trends are outside the business’s core competencies?

Consumer global goods giant, P&G, is among several large corporations meeting this strategic challenge by experimenting with the innovative approach of corporate venturing - becoming an investor in the new business ideas others develop.

Chetan Parekh, Senior Brand Director & Innovation Portfolio Leader at P&G Ventures, will join this program to discuss the strategic rationale and practical execution of this approach.

  • Understand how corporate venturing (cv) can help one's corporation innovate
  • Discover the opportunities and challenges in organizing for and executing cv
  • Learn how to measure success, handle failure, and successfully evolve one's cv strategies
