Confessions on Corporate-Startup Collaboration

Until  ()

About this Event

On the one hand, start-ups are agile, innovative, and young; they are growing fast and searching for development, resources, and scalability. On the other hand, large companies benefit from resources and expertise and the maturity and scalability of their business - although they have rigid procedures and inertia. It is clear that both organizations can learn and benefit from each other.

What are the advantages and pitfalls for corporations and startups to collaborate? How to create a “win-win” collaboration?


In partnership with Early Metrics, join us for an evening of interesting discussions on how corporates and startups collaborate through honest confessions and experience sharing about what works and what does not.
