The 5th Wave of CVC is coming
We are pleased to present to you a report on the sentiment of cooperation between corporations and start-ups during the crisis caused by COVID-19
Welcome to The Fifth Wave: The Era of Efficiency
The first wave of investment was called the era of conglomerates. The second began with the flourishing and dynamic development of the Silicon Valley and the technology companies that formed in it. The third era began with the development of the internet and dotcom boom. The fourth wave is the era of unicorns, private technology companies valued at over $ 1 billion. The end of each of the four waves brought a major economic crisis, which forced the market to change the rules of the game, but which also heralded a new technological revolution. Today, due to the crisis caused by the global pandemic of COVID-19, we are once again dealing with the twilight of the previous era of corporate investment in start-ups and the beginning of a completely new deal. It is a test, not only for corporate investment departments that will have to adapt their strategies to the new reality, but also for technological start-ups that will have to find solid business foundations to survive.
