James Mawson, CEO and founder of Mawsonia, the publishing company producing Global Corporate Venturing, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim. 

In this conversation, we talk about the current state and the future of corporate venturing, the activity of big corporations who invest in startups in various ways, during and post-COVID-19.

My takeaway is that corporate venturing has emerged as a more and more reliable and impactful asset class, born out of a desire to catch up on innovation but maturing into a significant, positive force for sustainable, high impact innovation, growing through shocks in the economy.
