In today's episode of Highway to Scale I'm joined by Jordan who is the Founder and Partner at Rainmaking, as well as a CEO of the Rainmaking Venture Studio. Jordan will tell us more about the process of corporate venture building, why startup co-founders need to be able to navigate and thrive in uncertainty, and why a long-term vision of a company is important for its success.

Jordan Schlipf — Rainmaking Founder and Partner
Jordan is a Founder & Partner at Rainmaking, a global corporate innovation and venture development firm.
He is a serial tech founder, early-stage investor and an expert Lean Startup trainer. Today, Jordan is a Venture Partner at Vectr Ventures and CEO of the Rainmaking Venture Studio, an investment-only Corporate Venture Builder ('CVB').
Rainmaking is a global corporate innovation and venture development firm. Their Venture Studio offers a model for large companies to acquire the startups they want at the time that they need them at a price they can afford.
Rainmaking Venture Studio combines the scale strengths of large companies with their deep experience in building ventures to create high-growth ventures. This approach de-risks the process of building strategically aligned businesses for their corporate partners, without losing long-term ownership.
Rainmaking acts as professional venture builders and investors, co-investing with companies and sharing in the risk and reward. They are not consultants or a development agency, so they never charge fees, but act as true partners.
