COUNTER CLUB

Opening the hidden secrets of CVC

Community

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. For nascent CVCs we share our CVC Playbook and act as a trusted, unbiased external advisor providing knowledge and advice in contentious situations.

Free

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. Sign up to our Slack channel and subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates. 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.

The Counter Club congregates at our annual Counter conference, held in San Francisco. We also host a number of events throughout the year.
