LEADINGMILE’S VISION ON VENTURE CAPITAL
We believe that venture capital is key in maintaining and accelerating a healthy business ecosystem. In the Netherlands and Amsterdam in particular, we are fortunate to have one of the major start-up ecosystems globally. Even though the future is bright, challenges are still a part of the journey for most corporations involved in venture capital.
We are seeing a major shift in the business landscape. This consists of companies no longer putting their main focus on their core business, but into exploring new opportunities. The main shift we are seeing, is that a company’s success is no longer determined by its ability to make the most out of their main activities, but rather their ability to create value by exploring new ventures and opportunities within their respective ecosystem.
