Alex Marquez talks to Tearsheet host Zack Miller about his role at Experian Ventures, and investing in innovation.

After 18+ years in corporate venture capital, credit bureau Experian brought in Alex Marquez last year to launch its own investment vehicle. While the firm has been acquisitive throughout its history, this was a new initiative for the firm as it invests in innovation.

Alex is our guest today on the Tearsheet podcast, where we discuss Experian’s investment mandate and how he measures the success of his corporate venture programme. We also talk about how the investment side integrates into the firm’s larger strategy.
