- Analyse two widely-known case studies, that you most likely engage with every day

About the speaker

My name is Sam De Smedt. I’m a Venture Architect at Bundl, the Corporate Venture Development Firm. I’m really excited to chat with you about how to create an ecosystem, by shifting away from an ‘egosystem’ mindset and approach.

In recent years, I’ve supported my diverse range of clients in building, scouting, and connecting new ventures in an ecosystem setting. Most notably, assisting a telecom player and a construction company in setting up a venture that offers housing on subscription, and taking part in the strategic investment of a bank and an insurer in an EV charging startup.

My talk will be about the basic dynamics of similar ecosystems, tap into two well known case studies and show how you can get started in setting one up, or participating in one yourself.
