How to run effective corporate venture boards

Corporate innovation is a numbers game, but quality still matters.

Any selected innovation project must be aligned with organisation's strategy and ambition.

To reduce the risk of uncertainty, inherent in innovation investments, funding must be released in tranches.

Whose job is to make those decisions?

Innovators innovate, managers manage, and executives fund.

Corporate venture board is a group of leaders who are in charge of executing the organisation's innovation strategy.

They usually do that by overseeing the organisation's innovation portfolio and funnel. They are also involved with the strategy formulation.

They usually aren't limited to specific types of innovation vehicles, i.e. accelerators, partnership, corporate venture capital, and so on.
