Over the past three years, the Global Corporate Venturing & Innovation (GCVI) Summit has grown to include over 650 business leaders from the corporate venturing and innovation professionals ecosystem.

Corporates attending have represented groups that are both experts and young learners of CV&I, leading to the GCVI Summit being distinguished as the must-attend event for relationship cultivation and knowledge transfer for all active members of the community.

In this, the fourth iteration of the GCVI Summit, you'll be part of the debate that focuses on how today’s multinationals will ride the innovation wave of disruption. Set against the backdrop of organizational shift as exhibited by CV&I leaders such as GE and Intel, the 2019 GCVI Summit will provide insight on timely approaches to navigate both operational and technological industry disruption.
