＜Comment from the awardee＞
“ Each year, Global Corporate Venturing (GCV) chooses the top 50 Emerging Leaders in Corporate Venture around the world and I’m happy we made it on the top 10 this year (#4)!
Venture is a team sport and we work closely as “One Team” to close 15+ new deals last year and help our parent company make a massive US$350M investment into Hippo. Our team also bridged several partnerships with portfolio companies including, Carro, Jupiter Intelligence, and Socotra. While we have accomplished a lot in a short amount of time, we still have much more to do. We’re a little different from other CVCs, we’re VC + C so we get the best of both worlds.
What’s great about being part of the MS&AD family is our global reach (over 50 countries around the world) and ability to invest in different parts of the world. The culture of our team is set up to push boundaries, move fast and make big market bets. We care about making a positive impact, extending our parent company’s values of sustainability, social impact and financial inclusion. There’s never a day where I’m not learning something new. We’re transforming the world for the better together!”
