CII, Infosys, Accenture, Tracxn, and Mawsonia recently carried out a study on the CVC ecosystem in India and have come out with a report. Insights were gathered from a wide range of industry practitioners and business leaders in the startup ecosystem. There is immense potential for corporates to drive the startup ecosystem’s growth while capturing their innovation and financial value. However, this value will not be fully unlocked without increased adoption of CVC by corporates and progress on the governmental side. The barriers are lack of awareness and understanding of the CVC investment model, risk aversion for startup investment and the government's role in policy and regulation.
