Video: Innovation Coffee Break: Alex Marquez, Experian Ventures

Our latest Innovation Coffee Break features Alex Marquez, Vice President & Global Head of Experian Ventures, the venture investment arm of the global information services company.

Drawing on his experience in the corporate venture space, Alex offers some much-needed historical perspective on how CVCs as a whole have responded to previous crises. We touch on everything from the big strategic questions facing CVCs during this economic climate to specific observations on fintech trends in emerging markets.

Hosted by Vijay Rajendran, Director of Corporate Innovation & Partnerships at 500 Startups, this conversation covers:

  • Why CVCs should be more aggressive doing deals right now
  • Digital payments and why technology tends to “leapfrog” in frontier markets
  • The future of the India Stack – betting on fintechs vs. larger tech incumbents
  • Predictions on CVC investment activity amid the COVID-19 crisis
