Emerald Technology Ventures and Go Beyond Investing are pleased to announce a collaboration in the area of Open Innovation and Venture Management training for corporations. The two companies will jointly organize workshops and training courses to support established industrial corporations in scouting for relevant opportunities in-house or externally, establishing strategic partnerships with young technology companies or creating awareness for open innovation themes within their organizations.

The goal of the collaboration is to draw from both Emerald’s and Go Beyond’s combined 27 years of experience and expertise in seed to late stage venture investment, open innovation management and strategic partnership structuring. The open innovation and venture management training workshops offered by the two firms are tailored around the specific needs of corporations to gain insight into relevant technology trends and to establish strong partnerships with promising technology companies.

Hans Dellenbach, CFO of Emerald, stated, “Emerald has been a trusted partner for corporate venture units around the world for 17 years. The partnership with Go Beyond further broadens our service offering to customers.”

“Combining the insights of our early stage investor experience with the venture fund (later stage) experience of the Emerald Technology Ventures team is a great combination and brings a unique service offering to corporates.” commented Klaus Kummermehr, Partner Go Beyond Investing.
