The emergence of tech startups have been rapidly disrupting traditional businesses. The largest taxi company in the world (Uber) owns no taxis and yet has caused incumbents to lose millions of dollars in profit.
In a bid to disrupt themselves before being disrupted by outsiders, many companies are starting their own accelerator programmes and Corporate Venture Capital (CVC) arms to spur corporate innovation.
Corporate innovation is about more than just traditional investing. It is about strategic partnerships that complement core businesses. Crucially, it's about infusing innovation through all arms of the business.
So how can corporates work with startups? How can we take this further to strengthen the corporate as a whole?
This session will cover the landscape, opportunities and challenges facing corporates, as well as the paths forward.
