[ENG] #152 - Ashish Aggarwal (PayPal Ventures) - How PayPal Ventures is shaping the future of CVC?

Partner at Paypal Ventures

Season 1, episode 152

In this episode, I have a conversation with Ashish, to explore the world of Corporate VC. He shares with us the differences between CVC and Institutional VC and what inspired PayPal to launch its CVC vehicle, as well as the primary goals of this initiative.

We delve into the complexities of launching a CVC in the fast-paced and highly competitive startup ecosystem, and how PayPal's CVC differs from traditional venture capital firms in terms of investment strategy and approach to portfolio management.

Ashish also reveals how PayPal ensures that the startups in which they invest receive the resources and support they need to succeed, and the value-add PayPal brings beyond just capital.

We also learn about the evolution of the CVC landscape since PayPal launched its vehicle and how they have adapted their strategy to stay competitive in this changing environment. 

In the second part of the podcast, Ashish provides an inside look at PayPal Ventures, including its geographic presence, figures, team, and value proposition.

We discuss how PayPal evaluates potential investment opportunities and the criteria used to determine whether a startup is a good fit for PayPal's portfolio.
