According to Prof. Elisa Alvarez-Garrido from Georgia State University, even ventures who know a lot about where they’re heading can still benefit much from investors. “They also need a lot of help with other things. Corporate Venture Capitalists do not only lend them the money but also help them figure out the issues about their regulation, for instance.”
Prof. Alvarez-Garrido also tells us that investors can also help a venture understand and foresee the problems that may come in later stages, so they can fix them early on. They can also help them find further financing grounds when they grow their network and help make international connections.
