On this episode, Gina and Tricia chat about corporate venture capital.
We sat down to chat with Melissa Widner, general partner at NAB Ventures, the venture capital arm of National Australia Bank.
Launched in 2016 with $100 million committed through to 2020, NAB Ventures has invested in over a dozen startups both in Australia and abroad so far. It invests in enterprises that “can leverage the bank’s expertise, assets and market position to drive growth in investee companies”.
We spoke to Melissa about the development of NAB Ventures and its investment themes, its relationship and how it works with the bank, and what it looks for in startups.
