Corporate Venture in Brasil - 2nd - 5th October

The Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency – Apex-Brasil – and Mawsonia, publisher of Global Corporate Venturing, announce their strategic partnership to develop corporate venture capital in Brazil.

Our objective is to give access to the Brazilian investment and entrepreneurial ecosystem for global and local corporate venturing units willing to approach and operate in the country.


Upcoming Events

“I attend and present at 4-8 investor events every year, and the Global Corporate Venturing event in Sonoma [curated and moderated by LEIF] was the best event I have been a part of.  The sold-out event attracted an energetic crowd of key decision makers, and the sessions were well organised and moderated in a fashion that kept the audience engaged and provided the speakers ample opportunity to present their value and answer the audience’s questions. This event led to immediate new investor and customer interest, that has evolved into deep due diligence with 4 key new investors for my company.”


​Tim Reeser, CEO and Co-Founder, Lightning Hybrids (a BP Ventures portfolio company)

Global Corporate Venturing Asia Congress - 23rd September 2017


Come together to see how Asia is developing the innovations of the future through corporate venture capital.
There are numerous examples of 'Dragon Tech' and 'Tiger Tech' – Shenzhen for drones, WeChat as a platform, Wanxiang for blockchain, Softbank for robots, Singapore as a smart city – and much to learn from the financing structures that enable them.
But with growth and innovation capabilities come the potential for tensions. With a new US President, will we see Asia and US divergence, or greater convergence?​


Tom Whitehouse, LEIF Founder and Chairman, will be moderating and contributing to discussions focused on Asian Mobility and Manufacturing.

We curate and moderate events because they are a very useful complement to business development and capital-raising, and they serve to extend and refresh our network of investors and innovators. In addition to the large venture conferences listed below, we also organise and moderate smaller private events for our clients; round-table discussions, dinners, off-site team meetings etc.
