Master Class 6 – Venture Capital and Corporate Venture Capital

Startups and scaleups typically raise external equity funding from investors to grow their business to the next stage. From day 1 such equity funding needs to be carefully thought through at the strategic, financial, business and governance level. Raising equity funding from corporates (so-called CVC) adds another layer of complexity because of the strategic nature of such investment.


  • Design and structuring of a capital raising strategy, from (pre)seed through different series of growth capital
  • Design and structuring of a governance model tailored to the development and growth stage
  • Need for balanced relationships with corporate investors, from a freedom to operate, fundraising and exit perspective

What will you learn:

  • How to plan for and negotiate with various types of investors, from business angels to venture capital investors
  • How to pro-actively plan your capital raising strategy, adequately balancing valuation with investor protection
  • How to align founders/management and investors from a governance and exit perspective
  • How to negotiate with a corporate investor


This master class will be given at different data on 3 different locations. Each master class will be held from 12 am until 2 pm (lunch is included). After the class you will have the opportunity to network and connect with other business professionals.
