Barriers between corporates and startups are coming down. Relationships defined by competition and distrust are being transformed through new collaborations; no more guess work for entrepreneurs on how to build products that brands actually need and innovation pipelines within large corporations can be accelerated with minimal risk.
However, understanding how to build sustainable, trusted relationships and learning how to navigate the murky waters of value exchange are still issues for debate. Some companies have launched investment funds to attract talent; others are partnering with accelerators or VC firms; others are working with API platforms to provide developers with access to data.
Duncan Logan Founder and CEO of Rocketspace, will lead a discussion on open innovation between corporates and startups. The panel includes Co-Founder of MightyBell and Leanin.org Gina Bianchini, Head of New Ventures for eBay Guy Schory, and Global Head of Brand at British Airways Abigail Comber.
