Basics of Corporate Venture Capital – Part 2 of 2

December 10, 2020
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Eastern

Returning by popular demand, our experienced practitioners will continue their exploration of additional topics in corporate venture capital (CVC) deals, including CVC due diligence and how it may differ from traditional VC diligence and M&A diligence, CVC board and observer rights considerations, exit rights (their perils, as well as situations where they may make sense), and insights into current CVC trends. Session is designed for in-house and firm lawyers with limited CVC experience.
