Corporate Venturing and the Sustainable Development Goals

"the closest thing the world has to a strategy"

Author: Charmian Love, Said Business School

What are the SDGs? The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.

What is Corporate Venturing? Corporate Venturing teams engage with entrepreneurs as a way to bring new ideas and energy into the business. Corporate Venturing activities can include running incubators, accelerators and investing through corporate venture capital funds.
