GCV Academy Principles & Accreditation
The GCV Academy aims to promote and develop global capabilities in corporate venturing and innovation, leading to improved performance for individuals and greater success for organisations. The principles upon which the Academy has been established are reflected in a framework that assures the highest quality programs, from qualified and experienced leaders, and the most effective and efficient delivery.
The demand for GVC Academy programs reflects the global expansion and professionalising of corporate venturing and innovation units. With corporates participating in over 20% of global venture capital deals and growing demand for innovation and growth within corporates there is a need to drive individual, team and enterprise capabilities.
The success of any corporate venture or innovation unit depends upon the alignment of goals and capabilities. Ensuring the group has the skillset and best practices to drive strategic purpose, select the right approach and process (e.g. CVC fund, venturing, partnering, incubation etc.), engage with the eco-system and enhance people skills is vital. These in turn will drive strategic and financial performance.
