Corporate Ventures: The Key to Corporate Innovation and Growth?

SS&C Intralinks held its fifth annual M&A INsights Panel at the Rosewood in Menlo Park, CA. The focus of this year’s discussion was around corporate venture capital (CVC) and what role CVCs play to drive corporate innovation and growth.
