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.
