Our corporate venturing practice is headed by Dr. Christian Suttner. He has lead a corporate incubator, worked at a VC, participated in Silicon Valley accelerators and founded several startups himself. For clients he designed and implemented corporate venture capital outfits, incubators, accelerators, and performed performance reviews. He also lead / supported several spin-outs - from corporates and research institutions. Based on his long term experience and knowledge of current best practices we developed leading edge methodologies for various corporate venturing tasks.
