Corporate Venturing and Innovation - Lessons learned from startups

Thursday, 24 May 2018


Organization Team 2018    Speakers

After a deep dive focus on US and Israel in the past years, this year we will take a look at the German innovation ecosystem. What are the lessons to be learned from startups that will aid corporate innovation? Alternatively, what can startups learn from corporates?

We have invited a number of internationally renowned speakers, including corporate executives, successful entrepreneurs and experienced investors. Our speakers will provide their insights into the corporate venturing and innovation scene by relating their experience in digitalisation, B2B negotiations, corporate accelerators, evaluating investment opportunities and much more!

In the second part of the event, we will hear from successful entrepreneurs and investors on how they overcome the challenges of acquiring and integrating startups to boost corporate innovation. We will take a look at deal flow generation, innovation accounting, and discuss the upcoming trends in the food industry and how corporates evaluate these investment opportunities.

Check out our speakers to see the amazing line up that have already confirmed their participation.
