Global Consumer Council

The Global Consumer Council (GCC) has been established to provide a platform for CVCs in the consumer sector to connect and explore innovation and investment opportunities. The GCC will create thought leadership, drive content, and dive deeper into the issues that are currently affecting the consumer sector.

The council’s Advisory Board takes responsibility for choosing focused content and projects, with the objective of being as effective as possible. The GCC Advisory Board meets once quarterly to discuss thought leadership, strategic goals, and relevant content.

Advisory Board Members


Lukasz Garbowski, investment director at Better Tomorrow Ventures (BTV), joined GCV’s Global Venturing Review to talk about the unit’s unique approach, how it thinks about the new product categories that can leverage British American Tobacco (BAT)’s existing strengths, the challenges involved in convincing health-focused startups that they are a good fit, and the work the unit does not just investing, but introducing non-portfolio startups to BAT through its Labs programme.
