How do exits work in Corporate VC?

I have been thinking about how traditional exits all would have weird quirks in CVC and was wondering if someone could shed light on what the typical exits are in CVC.

Mainly I was thinking that:
1) IPO: You just helped grow another giant that could potentially overtake you in the future.
2) Acquisition by another company: Your competition will now reap the benefits of the company you grew.
3) Acquisition by your own company: potential conflict of interest in which you could give yourself favorable exits to cover up bad performance

I'm sure that in the real world these scenarios aren't nearly as negative as I painted them but I would like to know how it actually works out in practice.
