Member Consultation on M&A and corporate venturing

How to achieve a win-win for your business

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate venture capital are powerful tools that can help firms to innovate and grow. M&A activity is rebounding following the impact of COVID-19, and the UK remains the European leader of venture capital funding. Challenges around differing cultures and strategic vision, however, have prevented these relationships from succeeding in the past, and continue to threaten their long-term success.

This roundtable will bring together business leaders, legal professionals, and subject experts to share insights on:

  • How these models of innovation can be conducted to benefit all parties involved
  • What businesses can do to make the most of these relationships. 

Get involved

This event is part of a series of roundtables that kick start the CBI’s new Innovation campaign, Big Fish, Little Fish in partnership with Kainos.  The CBI, and its network, will bring together some of the most dynamic businesses, both large and small, with the aim of improving how firms work together to innovate. As it develops the campaign will also look to help firms create new partnerships based around shared best practice.

This is your opportunity to gain insight into how other businesses are approaching innovation relationships and feed your experience into a major project that is part of the CBI’s efforts to help companies thrive as the economy recovers.

Who should attend?

We want to learn from businesses big and small, across sectors, interested in innovation through collaboration. This roundtable is aimed at senior executives with significant experience of working with external partners to innovate or with a particular expertise in this area.
