Corporate venture investment climbs higher throughout 2018

Though many technology companies have robust venture investment initiatives—Alphabet’s venture funding universe and Intel Capital’s prolific approach to startup investment come to mind—other corporations are just now doubling down on venture investments. In 2018 to date, seed and early-stage rounds account for over 60 percent of corporate venture deal flow, which may creep up as more rounds get reported. You can see that bottom reflected in the low point of corporate venture investment activity. With rare exception, corporate venture firms have just one investor: the corporation itself. More often than not, that results in corporate venture investments being directionally aligned with corporate strategy.
