Thoughts from Paris - CLVF 1.2


Wow! What an adventure in Paris.

 A capacity crowd of corporate venturers, lab leaders and innovators came together in Paris to talk about all things ‘working with/partnering with small companies and start-ups.

Nissan Innovation lab being perfect hosts and kindly offering us all a chance to interact with their latest incubatees.

With the calibre of attendees we had, it is easy to see why Jean-Francois from NUMA told us that corporate venturing has doubled in the last 3 years, with over $83.5bn invested and now accounts for 20% of all Venture Capital invested.

It was a packed schedule of:

  • Case studies:
  • Key Speakers & Academics: 
    • Jean-Francois Caillard, NUMA and one of France's leading CV do-ers
    • Prof. Anna Glaser ESCP Europe management school
  • Workshop - creating a ‘Curious Company’.
 Quite amazed at the ground we covered (and still finished on time!). I certainly left with my brain on fire… 

Highlights 

For me, there were some key areas that resonated throughout the day - I am not sure there were answers but we heard a lot from both sides…

  • How to ...survive the corporate Tsunami
  • Co-location of internal teams and start-ups. 
  • The longer term thinking allowed by remaining on a salary with a safe job to go back to vs. the entrepreneurial creativity caused by having to pay the rent this month 
  • Is the CV department the correct point of contact or do you allow other areas of your business to undertake this type of activity?
  • ‘Options’ are they the easiest way forward for investments - Afterall the only time you will need to get senior sign-off is when it is a success! 
  • Conflicts of interest: Your company as a shareholder AND as a client Your business lines may prefer to work with a competitor 
And of course my favorite: Write and keep the “investment thesis” - since management evolves faster than portfolio

I am looking forward to arranging the content for 23/4 January in London. There are a few places available - let me know if you would like to find out how to attend.

  3. Do you ever eat a food and have a reaction that you know for a fact was caused by the food you ate? Or do you sometimes feel bad and wonder if there was anything you ate in the last few days that's causing you to feel this way? If you have a reaction to a food you ate, either immediately or within a couple hours, that you can irrefutably say was caused by that food, that is a food allergy. If you think you might be reacting to a food you ate recently, but can't pinpoint the food, the day or time, it could possibly be a food hidden allergy. Buy Photoshop CC 2020

  9. Philosophy is the study of realities, pursuit of wisdom, and commentary on general principles of life. It is concerned with a search of eternal truth, both conceptual as well as practical. It has five areas of search - Epistemology, Metaphysics, Aesthetics, Ethics and History. The instrument used by philosophy to unearth realities or to discover truth is logic, both inductive as well deductive. Educational philosophy is a branch of general philosophy, it gains strength from epistemology. It formulates the aims and objectives or contents of education that, in turn, influence the whole learning environment, society, and future generations. Download here

  10. The formal education system in the U.S. was designed to meet the demands of the industrial revolution by providing basic education to the masses. Pretty simple right? So why is it that we fail to recognize or refuse to acknowledge that the demands are different today? There has not been a calculable redefinition or evolution of the educational system since. This is scary as it will define the failure of our country step-by-step and bit-by-bit until we are reduced to a social collection of ignorance. order essay online

  14. The quality of education of the child will determine the quality of life in nation. As iterated in: "In ancient shadows and twilights where childhood had strayed, the world's great sorrows were born And its heroes were made. In the lost boyhood of Christ was betrayed" therefore, education is compulsory, compulsory education is one of the essentials for stability of democracy, social integration and to eliminate social evils. Thus Right to education Act is one such step taken by the government to fulfill its responsibility in achieving the aforesaid goals. This paper does not provide very deep information pertaining to the act, but only those provision which have been much debated. It further suggests certain changes which are possible and if taken into account will for sure result in the betterment of the act. In this paper a comparison has been made, between the provisions of the act, its implementation and effects with those real life problems, by way of a background story being narrated by a young boy about his childhood experiences. Although this Act has been legislated with a bonafide intention by the government but still it seems to be a fraud in guise of welfare. Best online Psychics
