THE CONVERSATION: Startups & Corporates

Info

25. 01. 2016
This event will be about sharing business stories. Isn´t storytelling the best way for startups and corporations to find common ground and start the CONVERSATION?


Come and share your business story, gain insights from fellow CEOs and entrepreneurs in leading global corporations and learn from and about companies that once used to be successful startups as well as startups of today that have won competitions and gone through incubation programs.


Join other inspiring, global, speakers who will come and share their experience. Corporate Leaders to address:

  • Strategy towards outsourced innovation (how do you acquire startups?)
  • What areas do you cooperate on (what would open your door to startups?)
  • What specific global programs for startups do you have? (lessons learned)

This event will not be about startups presenting their pitches in front of corporates. The selected startups will go through an intense coaching program and they will come prepared to share their story. Join us to do the same!
