Becoming a Corp-Up Machine - Leverage the Power of Startups to Drive Innovation in Core and Non-Core Areas

Startup collaboration has become a key strategic component of almost every corporation. Still the actual business impact is doubtful and from a pure RoI perspective, many startup programs would likely not make the cut.

During the workshop we will discuss (1) how to increase the quantity of startups, (2) how to increase the quality of your engagement (3) while keeping the cost under control.
