Corporate venture capital units invested in almost a quarter of global VC deals in the second quarter this year.
Brewdog, the independent Scottish brewery, has raised £100m from TSG Consumer Partners, the American private equity firm. In a message to shareholders on Saturday, the beer maker said TSG had acquired 22 per cent of the company. Brewdog said the transaction had given it a £1bn enterprise value.
