Opening the hidden secrets of CVC
The Counter Club is a network of corporate venture capitalists brought together by common challenges and opportunities to share best practices. The Counterpart Ventures team hosts events aimed at dispelling CVC myths and sharing lessons learned from some of the best corporate VCs in the industry.

Counter Club is a free community to join. Access is invite-only so please introduce yourself to a member of the team to gain access. Our events are all educational in nature. We open up many of the landmines that CVCs tend to navigate and provide clarity through the leadership of others. We act as an intermediary between CVCs and a gatekeeper of information to encourage best practice.
Events & CVC Report
The Counter Club congregates at our annual Counter conference, held in San Francisco. We also host a number of small, curated events throughout the year. View all of our upcoming and past events here: https://counterpartvc.eventbrite.com/. Going forward all events will be hosted on the new Online Community: https://counterclub.vc.
Each year, in collaboration with Silicon Valley Bank we co-author the State of CVC Report. Download a copy of the 2022 Report here.
