Many corporations are becoming interested in venture building studios to make use of internal IP and talent — but these programmes have a reputation for high costs and low success rates.

Structured correctly, however, this does not have to be the case. We brought together a panel of venture building experts who have managed to create successful playbooks for creating multiple internal ventures.


The discussion looked at:
– Compensation structures of venture building teams
– How to transition in external entrepreneurs
– Capitalisation models for internal ventures
– How to structure internal venture for an exit
– How to scale a venture studio operation
