    Abstract: At the early stage of a successful tech venture’s life cycle, it is assumed that the business model will evolve to higher quality over time. However, there are few empirical insights into business model evolution patterns for the performance-related classification of early-stage tech ventures.

  • Non-financial value creation in corporate venture capital: a systematic review of empirical studies   Order a copy of this article
    by Benjamin Bugl, Dominik K. Kanbach 
    Abstract: In recent decades, scholars have devoted increasing attention to equity investments in start-up companies executed by an intermediary owned and controlled by a corporation. Corporate venture capital (CVC) units provide liquidity to new venture companies and seek to achieve value creation for their corporate parents by offering a window to new technologies and for portfolio companies by leveraging their distinctive resource capabilities. This paper reviews the existing literature on CVC non-financial value creation for corporate parents and new venture portfolio firms in a systematic and replicable way. The contributions of our study are twofold. First, our thematic analysis reveals gaps in the existing knowledge, enabling scholars to investigate these research areas in more detail. Second, we provide a clear road map for CVC practitioners aiming to drive corporate innovation and scale new venture portfolio firms.
