Global Defence Council

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

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


Advisory Board


Media

There has never been a more crucial time to invest in technologies related to defence and security. War in Ukraine and growing geopolitical tensions between the US and China are bringing a new focus to an area that used to be taboo for investors.

Global Corporate Venturing editor Maija Palmer talks to Ryan Lewis, partner at SRI Ventures and Tom Park, partner at BDC Deep Tech Fund, about why they are setting up the GCV Defence Council Advisory Board to foster collaboration between corporate investors looking to invest in this area.
