This report is the first to be published by mVenturesBcn, a program of Mobile World Capital Barcelona, together with IESE Business School. Its aim is to provide a handbook on corporate venturing that can be useful for the entrepreneurial community globally. We provide a framework for understanding the problems and
challenges of established companies in achieving profitable growth and how they could become more innovative by using the wide set of tools that corporate venturing offers. A list of examples from selected sectors is included later.
